Blind man decks mugger in self defense

March 23, 2010

When you’re being mugged,  just give the criminal what he wants. That’s what self defense experts say. Better to lose property than to be severely injured or killed.

A blind mind in the United Kingdom didn’t take that advice.

The 53-year-old was walking home in daylight with his guide dog when two young criminals approached and demanded his money and cell phone. One of the criminals then slashed the blind man’s face with a sharp object.

That’s when the blind man hauled off and punched the guy in the face, then pushed both of them into a wall. Both suspects fled.

Fighting back during a property crime is not the safest option. Especially when you’re blind. But you have to hand it to the guy, he’s sure got guts.

Crime reported in the Basingstoke Gazette.
