Paris: A Saudi princess told police she was attacked in central Paris and robbed of a million-euro (USD 1.1 million) watch, authorities said today.

She reported to police she was “violently” robbed yesterday in the French capital’s second arrondissement by two men, who then escaped with her high-end Swiss brand Richard Mille watch.

The woman was not hospitalised, police said.

A specialist police unit that handles armed robberies is investigating the incident.

The Saudi embassy could not be immediately reached for comment.
