— -- Four people have been charged in France in the connection with alleged robbery of Kim Kardashian West, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office.

A 27-year-old faces charges of complicity with an armed robbery by an organized gang, sequestration and association with criminals, as is a 62-year-old and 63-year-old, authorities said.

Another suspect, 44, has been charged with Concealment/fencing by an organized gang and association with criminals.

Six others are still being questioned, authorities said.

Last October, Kardashian West, 35, was allegedly robbed at gunpoint in a Paris apartment she had rented for Fashion Week. The assailants, whom the reality TV star's publicist described as "armed, masked men dressed as police officers," allegedly tied up Kardashian West and stole jewelry worth an estimated $10 million.

Three days ago, police said that 17 people had been arrested in connection with the crime.

A representative for Kardashian West had no comment on the charges or arrests when reached by ABC News today.
