The Wrong Victim: Mugger Targets Blind Judo Champion
A street robber in Germany didn't know what had hit him when he tried to mug a blind man. He had made the mistake of choosing a world judo champion as his victim.
A brutal mugger who punched a blind man in the face to steal his carton of cigarettes got a nasty shock when he found he was dealing with a former world champion in judo for the visually impaired.
The teenager had threatened the 33-year-old blind man near the train station in Marburg. The champion had to be treated for a bloody nose following the incident.
