Actress Jaime King’s four year old son was injured after being showered with glass when a man jumped onto her car and shattered the back window in a bizarre attack yesterday.

King’s four year old son James was in the back seat of a parked car in Beverly Hills, California on Wednesday (April 4th) when a man leapt onto the back of the car and started hammering on rear windscreen until it smashed, showering glass onto the boy and injuring him, according to Entertainment Tonight.

“The suspect jumped on the rear windshield causing glass to shatter and strike the child,” Beverly Hills Police Department said in a statement, reported by the same outlet. “In an effort to protect the child, the female driver exited the vehicle and confronted the suspect, at which time he threw a can at her, striking her arm.”
