AceShowbiz - A new video gives insight into the terrifying robbery at Dorit Kemsley's home in Encino last month. The surveillance footage, which was released by the Los Angeles Police Department on Monday, November 8, saw two suspects entering the property.
The two of them was walking to a glass door on the side of the home. They seemingly had a conversation outside the door for about a minute. One of them then shattered the glass door, while the other walked away.
The footage also showed the suspects, who were described by police as males between 20 to 30 years old, bringing items out of the home wrapped in bedding. Police claimed that they left with high-end handbags, jewelry and watches before a third suspect came in a black 4-door pickup truck.
"Both suspects threatened to kill her as she pleaded for her life and the lives of her young children," police revealed in a news release on Monday. Police also said that Dorit had no choice but lead the suspects to her valuables "in fear for her safety."
In related news, the fashion designer detailed the home invasion in an interview with "Extra" special correspondent and former "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" co-star Teddi Mellencamp. "First of all, I was completely taken off guard," Dorit said. "[The burglars] were surprised to see me at home… When they did, they pushed me to the ground. They said, 'Who else is in the home?' " Dorit's children, Jagger (7) and Phoenix (5), were asleep in bed at the time of the robbery, while her husband was in London.
"There was someone else who said, 'Just kill her, just kill her already, just kill her,' and all I could think of [was], 'I have to save those babies,' " Dorit continued. "I begged them, I begged for my life, and begged for their life." Dorit went on to say, "I said, 'I don't care about any of it, take it all. You can have it all. Please, I'm a mother of babies. Please, they need me. Please don't hurt me.' "
Dorit said that she tried to stay "very calm" throughout the ordeal, because "the situation could have gone a lot worse." She added, "I fought for mine and my kids' lives, and I got lucky. My kids didn't wake up and they don't know anything about it."
Following the terrifying robbery, the Bravo personality shared that she has suffered a series of "panic attacks." She added, "How am I ever going to feel safe again? How do I protect my children? … I'm going through all of that."
