Heir to McDonald's fortune violently attacked in £250,000 robbery
Multi-millionaire Geoffrey McDonald was violently beaten when he returned to their Provence home in the south of France after a night out with his wife.
The robbers had been lying in wait at the eight-bedroom property in Avignon on June 18.
They made off with 300,000 euros, as well as jewellery and passports, according to the Mail Online.
Mr McDonald, 60 was said to be severely shocked after the break-in.
The area - also home to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie - has been plagued by robberies in recent months.
Local public prosecutor Christian Pasta said: "We suspect there is an organised gang of robbers targeting wealthy homeowners and have an ongoing investigation to bring them to justice."
