A group of about 10 good Samaritans reportedly saved a 90-year-old World War II veteran who was attacked by a man while he sat in his car in Olympia, Washington. 

The unidentified veteran was sitting in his car, parked outside of Bayview Thriftway store on Wednesday night, while his daughter went inside to shop, reports KOMO. 

Keith Davis, 48, allegedly approached the man in his vehicle and asked him for a cigarette, according to police. When the veteran told Davis he didn't have one, the suspect reportedly picked up a 10-pound rock and threw it at the driver's side window, shattering the glass. Police say Davis climbed through the broken window and attacked the veteran. 

One witness then rushed to help the victim by pulling Davis out of the vehicle, reports Washington News Now. A group of about 10 more people reportedly surrounded the suspect until police arrived.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

Davis was booked into Thurston County Jail and charged with second-degree assault, which is a felony. He has not received bail and was reportedly unable to provide police with a motive for his alleged actions. 

The victim reportedly suffered from cuts to his arm from the broken glass.
