Following reports earlier this week that 16 arrests have been made in the Kim Kardashian Paris robbery case, it is now reported that four of the suspects have been charged.

International news agency AFP reports that a man identified as Yunice A., 63, has been charged with robbing Kardashian at gunpoint and tying her up.

A spokesperson for the Paris Prosecutors office confirmed to NBC News that two other men, Marceau B., 64, and Florus H., 45, were charged with aiding and abetting the theft.

A fourth man, Gary M., 27, is also being presented to the investigating judge. They will remain in provisional detention while they are under formal investigation. 

The prosecutors office said six more people could also be put under formal investigation on Friday.

Kardashian, who is married to rapper Kanye West, was robbed of approximately €9 million worth of jewellery, including her engagement ring, by a group of thieves last October while she was staying in a luxury property in Paris.

She had been visiting the French capital with members of her family for fashion week when the incident occurred.

Five men who were posing as police officers and wearing ski masks burst into the property at 3.00am, tied up the reality star and made off with her jewellery on bicycles.

In a recently released trailer for her reality series Keeping up with the Kardashians, an emotional Kardashian broke her silence on her ordeal. 

"They're going to shoot me in the back," she recalled in tears. "There's no way out. It makes me so upset to think about it."

The series returns to screens in March.
