LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Kim Glass, a silver medalist at the Beijing 2008 Olympics, was attacked by a homeless man in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday, July 9.

Glass said she was leaving lunch with a friend when she noticed a man across the street holding an object. Glass described the object as a “pipe”.

Despite the severity of the attack, Glass assured her supporters that she would recover from her injuries. “Right now it looks like my vision will be fine and I got really great stitches from the doctor,” she said. A Los Angeles Police Department spokesman identified the homeless man as 51-year-old Semeon Tesfamariam and said he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, according to the Associated Press.
