We can't believe something like this has happened AGAIN!
Just a few months after Kim Kardashian West was robbed in her Paris apartment, Bollywood star Mallika Sherawat and her boyfriend Cyrille Auxenfans were also terrorized and attacked by thieves.

According to police, the robbery went down last Friday in Mallika's 16th arrondissement apartment around 9:30 PM. The pair had just returned from an outing when they were suddenly accosted by intruders with tear gas.
The Le Parisien went on to reveal:
"… without saying a word, sprayed their victims with tear gas before punching them."
How terrifying! We can't imagine enduring such unnecessary violence!
Following the assault, the thieves inexplicably ran off, leaving a SHOCKED Sherawat and Auxenfans to call authorities.
As of now, police are investigating the crime as an attempted robbery. It's possible the actress and her french businessman boyfriend were targeted for their wealth, and the two were just unlucky enough to encounter the criminals as they attempted to raid the apartment.
As for the current status of the investigation, cops stated:
"A full investigation to find the assailants is underway."
Well, we just hope the robbers are caught ASAP. It would be awful for the perps to vanish like West's assailants did!
We'll keep you updated as this case progresses.
