A man was viciously attacked in broad daylight by a mob of teenagers while helping an elderly woman at a gas station.  

Orrden Williams Jr. recounted his frightening experience tonight with Sean Hannity.

He said that an elderly woman told him that she was nervous about walking to her car alone from inside the Memphis, TN gas station's store. 

Williams explained that the woman was scared of a group of teenagers who were outside loitering and throwing gang signs, so he decided to walk the woman to her car. 

As soon as he stepped outside with the woman, the teens charged and began violently attacking him with punches and kicks. 

Williams told Hannity that he considered using the gun he had in his car to protect himself and his family, who were inside his vehicle at the time of the attack.

He also said that customers and workers inside the store held the door shut, which prevented him from going back inside to escape. 

Hannity asked if he had any form of protection with him and he replied that he had a gun, but didn't want to harm the kids.

Williams said as a former football player, he knows what it means to be really hurt and that the teens didn't do much "damage" to him. 

Hannity responded that Williams would have been within his rights to defend himself with a firearm, applauding him for showing the discipline not to use the weapon. 

"I hope MPD works diligently in prosecuting all of these kids," Williams said. "Because it’s really bad they are doing this in broad daylight. This was a terrorist act, that’s what it was. This lady could have lost her life, I could have lost mine, in broad daylight."

He said he came out of the attack fine other than some lower back pain.
