The sisters of Manchester City player Riyad Mahrez were beaten up in their beauty shop by a gang in Paris, France.
Dounya and Ines were injured and traumatised by the ordeal while other employees were kicked and punched.
The gang consisting of 12 thugs also destroyed some beauty products after a customer refused to pay for treatment at the shop in Paris.
Douyna, who was grabbed by the throat, said they may have been targeted because of their footballer brother who is currently under quarantine following a positive COVID-19 test.
“We were all shocked and traumatised. I don’t know why this happened and it could be because we are the sisters of . . . Riyad Mahrez.”
According to Douyna, trouble started when a female customer received beauty treatment but would not pay.
“Within a few seconds, three cars arrived in front of the salon and these guys got out and came into the shop and started attacking us.
“They were shouting and insulting everybody. They threw things on the floor and acted without pity. One tried to strangle me while another kicked my little sister’s leg.”
Douyna also added of The 26 Beauty salon: “My sister and I get up every morning to come to work. We work hard and deserve respect.”
It is still uncertain if anything has been stolen from throwing shop.
Meanwhile, Mahrez has been unable to visit his distraught sisters since he is still under self-isolation.
