A legally blind Santa Ana man used his cane to fight off two men armed with a knife who attempted to mug him in the 1100 block of Thousand Oaks Boulevard on Saturday afternoon, sheriff's deputies said.
Raymond McMillion, 34, suffered a small puncture wound on one of his index fingers from the knife, but did not require medical treatment, Sgt. M. Cole McDaniel said.
The incident occurred about 5 p.m. as McMillion waited at the curb to be picked up by his employer after a day of selling household cleaning products door-to-door.
Five men drove up in a small, white four-door car and two got out and approached the man, McDaniel said. One brandished a knife while the other attempted to grab a fanny pack that McMillion wore around his waist.
