Academy Award-winning US actress Hilary Swank had her handbag snatched in a Paris suburb Friday by thieves who smashed the window of the taxi she was in, police said.

Three assailants pounced on the taxi as it got stuck in traffic in the northern suburb of Saint-Denis on Friday morning, said a police source.

They broke the window of the back seat, and snatched Swank's designer bag from her hands.

Motorists often fall victim to smash-and-grab robberies in this part of town, which has regular traffic jams.
