On November 11 around 9:30 pm, the 40-year-old arrived at her apartment building in the upmarket 16th arrondissement of Paris with her 45-year-old boyfriend Cyrille Auxenfans.

Le Parisien newspaper reports that the attackers covered their faces with scarves and "without saying a word, sprayed their victims with tear gas before punching them," according to Daily Mail.
