Cameras Captured Home Invasion Of ‘Real Housewives’ Star

Encino, CA – The Los Angeles Police Department released bodycam video on Monday night of the October home invasion of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Dorit Kemsley (video below).

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) said the incident occurred at about 10:50 p.m. on Oct. 27 at Kemsley’s home in the 17000 block of Adlon Road in Encino, KABC reported.

The housewife was home with her children, 7-year-old Jagger and 5-year-old Phoenix.

Kemsley had just returned from a trip to London for her nephew’s wedding and her husband, P.K. Kemsley, was still there when the home invasion occurred, the Daily Mail reported.

The reality television star awoke to find masked, armed men at the foot of her bed.

The robbers ordered Kemsley out of bed and forced her at gunpoint to lead them to jewelry and other valuables around the house, NBC News reported.

“The victim was inside the residence at the time and was confronted by the suspects. Both suspects threatened to kill her as she pleaded for her life and the lives of her young children,” LAPD said in a press release.

The Kemsley children were asleep in their bedroom during the home invasion and did not see anything, KABC reported.

The robbers ransacked the celebrity couple’s $6.475 million, 9,000-square foot home for about 20 minutes.

The thieves made off with more than a $1 million in designer purses, shoes, watches, and other accessories, NBC News reported.

LAPD released surveillance camera videos from the outside of Kemsley’s house on Nov. 8 that showed two men approaching a glass door on the back of the home, which is inside a walled compound.

Both men were wearing masks and hooded sweatshirts, the video showed.

The home invaders took their time in breaking into the home.

The video showed the two men stood at the door and plotted out their next steps on a patio marked with chalk drawings made by the children.

One of the thieves pointed out things inside the home through the glass and then the two looked around the yard as if confirming their getaway route, the video showed.

Then one of the suspects left the camera frame and the other man applied some kind of device to the glass door and shattered it.

Surveillance video from the front yard showed that the thieves carried their stolen booty out of the Kemsley home wrapped in bedsheets.

A third suspect appeared in the video and help the initial home invaders haul stolen goods across the front yard and out through the front gate, which had been opened from the inside, the video showed.

The thieves loaded the stolen items into a black, four-door pickup truck on the street right in front of the Kemsley home and then made their getaway, the video showed.

No arrests have yet been made in the case and LAPD released the security video with the goal of getting an identification on the suspects from members of the public, KABC reported.

The investigation is being handled by LAPD’s Robbery Homicide Division.

While it’s not uncommon for the Real Housewives in all of Bravo’s franchises to show off their fabulously-stocked closets, the Beverly Hill’s cast has suffered the most for publicizing their largess and it’s the second time around for Kemsley.

Her home was targeted in January of 2019 by a thief who burglarized high-end items from celebrities’ homes, Access Hollywood reported.
