(Newser) – Naomi Campbell was mugged in Paris as she was trying to hail a cab last month, sources tell the New York Post. A ligament in her leg was torn when she was pushed to the ground, and she's been using a wheelchair and crutches since. One source says the supermodel hasn't spoken about the attack because French police are still looking for the assailants. "It was terrifying," says a source. "Naomi believes the assailant had been watching her, casing her out, and waited for a moment to strike when she was alone." It's not clear what was stolen from her.

What? She didn't have her cellphone with her? It seems to be her choice of weapon. :)
