At least fifteen people have been arrested by French police in connection with the Paris gunpoint robbery of reality television star Kim Kardashian last October, according to a police source.

The arrests were made Monday local time, Europe 1 Radio, RTL Radio and other French media have reported citing a police source.

Kardashian, 36, was tied up and robbed of jewellery worth about $12.9 million by a gang of masked men who burst into her luxury apartment in October 3, while she was in the city for Fashion week.

 RTL Radio said 15 people were arrested, in part due to DNA traces left at the scene.

The station said the perpetrators, some disguised as police officers, had fled the scene on foot and bicycles.

A Paris police source told Reuters in October that five attackers wearing ski masks and clothes with police markings struck the apartment about 3am.

The Paris prosecutor could not be immediately reached for comment.
