Olympic Medalist, Kim Glass Att@cked Outside LA Restaurant

Fitness model, trainer and former Olympian, Kim Glass has recounted how a man attacked her outside a Los Angeles restaurant, hurling a metal object at her and fracturing her eye socket.

In a video posted on social media, the 2008 volleyball silver medalist showed her right eye swollen and bruised, with a line of stitches below her eyebrow as she shares her sad story.

According to her, she was saying goodbye to a friend after lunch in downtown LA when the “homeless man” ran up.

She said;

“He had something in his hand on the other side of the car in the street and he just kind of looked at me with some pretty hateful eyes and as I turned to go tell my friend, ‘I think something’s wrong with him, I think he’s gonna hit the car,’ before I knew it, a big metal bolt, like a pipe, hit me in my eye. Hit me here, here.

 It happened so fast — he literally flung it from the street so he was not even close to me at all.”
