UPDATE



9:50 AM PT — The LAPD says it did arrest the suspect — ID’ed as a 51-year-old male — announcing Monday afternoon the man was booked for felony assault with a deadly weapon and was given no bail.



Volleyball star Kim Glass — who won a silver medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics — says she was attacked by a homeless man in Los Angeles this weekend … and nearly lost her eye in the incident.



Glass said it all happened on Saturday … after she was leaving lunch with a friend at a restaurant in Downtown L.A.



In a series of videos posted to her social media page, Glass said after she had exited the eatery, she noticed a man in the street with something in his hand.



“He just like looked at me with some pretty hateful eyes,” Glass said. “And, as I turned to go tell my friend, ‘I think something’s, like, wrong with him and I think he’s going to hit a car,’ before I knew it, a big metal bolt, like pipe, hit me right here.”



“It happened so fast.”
