According to the Evening Standard, the 40-year-old actress was returning to her residential building in the 16th arrondissement with Auxenfans around 9:30 p.m. on Friday when the attack occurred.
Le Parisien said that the attackers wore scarves concealing their faces and without saying a word, sprayed their victims with tear gas before punching them.
After they fled the spot, shocked Sherawat called the emergency service. A criminal investigation has been launched where detectives are working on the theory that the assailants were attempting a robbery.
This incident comes just a month after Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint at a hotel in Paris.
