ATLANTA — A woman driving out of a shopping plaza says she couldn’t believe when a man randomly jumped on the hood of her car and then kicked-in her windshield.
A dashcam caught the whole thing on video.
"All of a sudden the next thing I know (he was) jumping and kicking in the windshield," the victim, who asked only to be identified as Kristen, told Channel 2's Nefertiti Jaquez. "I was so terrified."
Kristen’s dashcam caught him jumping on the hood of her car before stomping on her windshield.
“I have no clue why this happened and why me?” Kristen said.
The incident happened around 1:30 p.m. Monday a shopping plaza along Moreland Drive.

Kristen told Jaquez she had just pumped gas and was headed home.
As she pulled out of the parking lot, police said the man just ran towards her car.
“Honestly I thought he was going to kick in the windshield and start kicking me,” Kristen said.
The audio on the dashcam was off, but the victim told Jaquez she was screaming for help.
“Just looking into someone’s face who clearly doesn’t care about anything or anyone and seeing him that close to you, kicking at you,” Kristen said.
Soon after, calling the police and filing a report, she and her husband decided to post the video online in an effort to get this guy off the streets.
Especially because, when you look at the video, it also looks like the suspect had some type of sharp object in his hand.
As for Kristen, she is still trying to process what happened.
“I think I’m just numb still,” Kristen said.
DeKalb County and Atlanta police are investigating the incident.
