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.

I love TMZ pretending to have "integrity" when it comes to stories about Kim Kardashian.

If this story is as reported, then the photog is clearly at fault. This was private property. I'm familiar with the gym and I know it had to take something for her to even be there.....it ain't easy. So instead of picking on Rob, pick on Kim.......there's a piece of work. That makes Kanye a real disgrace and that hurts my feelings. Rob, Khloe and Kourtney are the only ones with half a brain. Just because some people live to be haters and will hate ANYbody shows such juvenile behavior....Go with the facts instead of whatever you want to cook up! Rob has it right. She was wrong. Could he have handled it better? Sure, he shoulda' called the cops on her but she was in the wrong.
