A 911 call had been made to police earlier about a man vandalizing and attacking a car in a nearby neighborhood
38-year-old actress Jamie King was terrifyingly attacked in Beverly Hills. She was in an upscale Los Angeles neighborhood when 47-year-old Paul Francis Floyd. who was on a skateboard, struck her vehicle in the middle of traffic.
The man jumped in front of King's parked Mercedes-Benz and crawled onto the hood of her car, Daily Mail reported.
According to the Beverly Hills Police Department, he then proceeded to smash the front windshield of the car before jumping to the back and smashing the rear windshield as well.
The actress's 4-year-old son, James Knight Newman, was inside the car and firmly in place in a car seat in the back. The toddler was hit with some shattered glass pieces from the window.
King was standing outside the car when the incident occurred but a friend of hers was sitting in the driver's seat.
The friend got out of the car when Floyd started smashing the windows and immediately went to confront him "in an effort to protect the child".
While he was being confronted by King's friend, he threw a can at the woman which ended up hitting her on the arm. He ran away immediately after but was caught by police nearby.
Floyd was subsequently arrested and has been charged with felony child endangerment, misdemeanor battery, and 2 counts of felony vandalism. He is being held on a $100,000 bail and will appear in court on April 6.
King, who also has another son, 2-year-old Leo Thames, was visibly shaken by the incident and she spoke to police officers just after everything happened. She appeared to be uninjured.
The Beverly Hills Police first started getting 911 calls at around 4:43 pm with reports of an unidentified man vandalizing one of the vehicles in the neighborhood.
Before Floyd reached King's car, he had already attacked another one.
