Rob Kardashian
stole a photog's camera memory card Wednesday because she dared to trespass on private property where he was changing his clothes ... at least that's what Rob is telling friends.

TMZ broke the story ... Rob manhandled the photog and snatched her camera's memory card from her.  The cops have launched a robbery investigation.

As for why Rob did it ... he's telling people he had just gone to a private, West Hollywood gym owned by famed trainer Gunnar Peterson

Rob is telling friends he was changing into his gym clothes inside the garage ... in an area that is not visible from the street. Rob claims the photog somehow entered the garage -- which is caged off to the public -- members must get out of their car and enter the code to get inside. 

Rob says as he was changing, he noticed the photog inside the garage, snapping pics. It's unclear how the photog got through the cage.

Someone who manages the gym told TMZ ... they train big celebs and the photogs have a custom of waiting on public property to get their shot. That makes sense, because the code to the cage presumably keeps non-members out.

FYI ... Rob's story almost certainly does not create a defense to robbery, but prosecutors may back off if a jury would be inclined to hate the victim.

so if a small girl wandered into the garage and saw a naked rob douche bag would he not be exposing himself to a minor. Maybe the photog was getting evidence of indecent exposure. KTrash are such A$$H@les

If this gym trains "big celebs", why on earth was
Rob K there. Oh that's right, he's fat.

So let's get this straight. He detained and then stole the photographers property. This is assault, battery, theft & robbery all squeezed into one pair of full length lycra pantalones. Talk about a bust-up.

let's see - the photog parked in a garage that she obviously had NO trouble accessing.....waited in her car for Rob to show up....so far so good - no big issue here. THEN Rob decides to get naked in a PUBLIC PLACE and cries foul?
.
If you get NAKED in a place the PUBLIC has access to, YOU ARE A COMPLETE IDIOT and you're breaking the law.

I guess we can consider ourselves lucky....imagine what would have gone on had KIM been photographed changing in the garage....she would have treated it like a photo shoot for a spread in HUSTLER magazine.

According to the LA Times, Rob also struck her in the face. All this wonderful publicity the Ks crave will be their downfall in the end.

me thinks Mr ROB is a bit embarrassed about what he's NOT packing....most guys wouldn't mind some random chick seeing their junk. Maybe Rob's NOT a Kardashian after-all.

Wouldn't the venue be changed if the DA thought he couldn't get a fair trial? I don't see how charges would be dropped just because people didnt like someone... Casey Anthony is a perfect example.
