"Knockout Game" Milwaukee victim speaks


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A man in Milwaukee is recovering after he was a victim of a violent phenomenon called the "knockout game."

53-year-old Tim Bessette was seriously injured when he was attacked by four teenagers Monday night.

Knockout attacks generally involve teenagers who randomly target victims and try to knock them out with one punch and then often the attacks are posted online.

Bessette says the teens did more than break his nose.

"I've gone through a nightmare in the past several days. My left eye, today is the first that I actually can see out of it. Everything was just so swelled up that I couldn't see."

Bessette says he gave descriptions of the teens to Milwaukee police.

Officers are warning people to watch out for these attacks.
