Armed pro-government demonstrators opened fire on the car of an Iranian opposition leader shattering its windows, his Web site reported on Friday
The report added that some 500 people had been demonstrating outside the building where he was staying since the day before.
The site described the demonstrators as armed and said police were unable to disperse them.
On Friday, the senior cleric Kazem Sedighi leading Friday prayers in the capital appeared to be giving a green light for people to take matters into their own hands against the opposition figures, if authorities didn't act.
"Around 500 basiji [militia] and residents of nearby villages surrounded the place where he was and attacked the building with stones, breaking windows," it said.
After several hours Mr Karroubi was able to leave with the help of police, but his car was attacked with gunfire as it pulled away.
As it was an armoured car, only the windows were damaged, the site said.
