Man Strangled, Robbed of Luxury Watch in Paris Street

A man walking his dog in Paris was strangled and robbed of his designer watch during the weekend, according to reports.

Police are searching for three suspects who ambushed the victim, a 59-year-old male, at around 2 a.m. on Sunday morning in the 17th arrondissement of the French capital.

The local resident was out with his pet on the Boulevard de Courcelles when he was attacked.

"One of the men strangled him with a strap until he lost consciousness and found himself on the ground," Actu 17 reports.

The muggers made off with their victim's high-end watch, an Audemars Piguet valued at approximately $90,000, sources say.

Authorities believe the man may have been targeted as he is a professional diamond dealer.

"Thefts of luxury watches with violence or by trickery are recurrent in the streets of the capital," according to Actu 17.

The brutal robbery comes amid a heated debate over violent crime and lawlessness tied to mass migration and the spread of Islam in France.

Military leaders have recently fired off two incendiary letters, warning the Macron government of looming "civil war" if strong measures are not taken to regain control of a society spiraling into chaos.
