Blind Veteran Takes Down Attacker In Broad Daylight WPTV, OKLAHOMA CITY -- A blind veteran was forced to defend himself after being attacked in broad daylight. Fifty-one-year-old Gordon Besaw has glaucoma. He and his seeing eye dog, Derby, were headed to the VA Medical Center for treatment Tuesday when police say he was attacked by 27-year-old Christopher Andrew. "He asked me, 'Are you blind?' I said yes," said Besaw. "He said, 'I can make you see before you see God.' " Police say Andrew punched the retired U.S. Army Special Forces soldier in the head. "He said, 'I can make you see again' and he punched me in the head again," Besaw said. "I'm like, 'Man, you're not going to like the way this is going to go.'"
