The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to PEOPLE on Thursday that there was an invasion and robbery in Encino Hills, Calif., at 10:50 p.m. involving three male intruders.

Her husband Paul "PK" Kemsley was in London at the time, but he has since headed home to his wife and kids, per the outlet, which was first to report the news. Kemsley had just returned from London herself on Tuesday.

Authorities told PEOPLE there were no injuries and an "unknown amount of property" was taken from the residence during the incident.

In a press release issued Thursday afternoon, LAPD said that "the victim was in the residence at the time and was met by the suspects. The victim was in fear and complied with the suspects demands by directing them to valuables. The suspects took handbags, jewelry, and watches with a significant monetary loss and fled the location in a black truck."

No arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation, though police said in the press release that the three suspects were described as between 20 and 30 years old wearing black hoodies and dark pants.

According to the Daily Mail, Kemsley was scheduled to begin production on the next season of RHOBH on Thursday, though her filming status is now unknown. A spokesperson for Bravo declined to comment.
