Olympian Kim Glass shows injury inflicted on her following attack by a homeless man

Kim Glass, an American volleyball player who took home a silver medal from the 2008 Beijing Olympics, claims she was attacked by a homeless man in Los Angeles this past weekend and almost lost an eye.

The incident, according to the 37-year-old, occurred on July 9 on Saturday as she was leaving lunch with a buddy at a restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles.

Glass claimed in a series of videos she shared to her social media website that as soon as she left the restaurant, she saw a man in the street holding something.

“It happened so fast,” she explained.

She said the man threw the object at her from several feet away … and it slammed right into her eye socket and the bridge of her nose, causing serious damage.

In videos taken a day after the attack, her eye was nearly swollen shut, and her face was still bloodied.

She said in the clips she was diagnosed with multiple facial fractures and needed stitches to close wounds.

She added she was grateful for all the support she’s received from friends and family since the incident, and happy things didn’t turn out worse.

She said in the video: “Just be safe out there. There’s a lot of mentally ill people on these streets right now and you shouldn’t have to be fearful when you walk but it’s true. And, so, you guys just be safe.”
