Gordon Besaw was just out for a walk with his seeing eye dog this week when he was approached by a stranger.
The man asked Besaw if he was blind.
When he said he was the man responded ‘I can make you see if you take off those glasses before you see God.'"
Besaw told News 9 in Oklahoma City that’s when things got rough.
The man punched him in the head and didn’t stop with once "he hit me in the head again. And I said ‘Man, this is not going to end well for you.”
What the bad guy didn’t know is that Besaw is a former Special Forces soldier and he did what any trained fighter would do.
He subdued the bad guy and waited for police.
"I hip tossed him, went to the ground and choked him until the cops came."
When police arrived they arrested 27 year-old Christopher Andrew.
Besaw said there is a message that comes with a story like this “never underestimate anybody."
