how do I lodge police complain for pick pocket in Paris metro station?

By | August 7, 2016 | in

Dear Sir/madam,
I'm from India and we recently visited your country. We are back here just yesterday night.
During our Paris stay we used Paris Metro Rail services.  My husband's wallet has been pick pocketed in the station called Garu de nord. This has happened on 4th of August 2016 at evening around 6:00 to 6:30. 
We were running short of time, as we have to catch the flight AI 412 scheduled at 10:00 o'clock evening from CDG. And before that we got to reach to our hotel, take our baggage and reach to airport at least two hours before the flight. So as short of time we were unable to file the police complain, but we do have told about the incident to the information desk.
On Airport I have talked to security, they said they can not do anything as the incidence happened on rail station and not on airport, but the person said we can file complain even after reaching India on RER.
So now please guide me how do to carry the process? and to whom should I file the complain?
As apart from money wallet contains credit card, original Indian driving licence, Hare Rama Hare Krishna membership card, YMCA membership card, Indian mobile chip, one more membership card etc.
We were in quite miserable position as we lost both credit card and money. And it was difficult to pay even taxi rent to the airport, as we lost all euros.
Please guide me how to proceed.
Gopi Shah.

There is a form online (in French) where you can lodge a report about a theft, although I'm unsure of how you proceed afterwards.
Here is the website for filing a report of theft with the French national police:
