OMG! Heroic Starbucks Customer Stops Robbery With Chair, Stabs Suspect With His Own Knife (WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO)

A heroic Starbucks customer in Fresno thwarted a robbery Saturday, smashing a chair over the would-be thief’s head, stabbing him with his own knife multiple times. He did it in flip-flops, no less!

Fresno Bee reports:

Both hero Cregg Jerri, 58, and suspect Ryan Michael Florez, 30, were stabbed during the fight Thursday that lasted for about a minute. Florez got away and later tried to tell police he was himself a victim of a robbery.

Friday, Dyer said police got their man – Florez. Dyer showed the video at a news conference and said that Florez will be charged with attempted armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon when he is booked into Fresno County Jail.

For now, Florez is in the hospital. He will be there for a few days recovering from stab wounds he received with his own knife during the fight with Jerri.

Jerri needed a few staples to close a stab wound he received during the fight.

The confrontation happened just before 5 p.m. Thursday. Florez entered the Starbucks at Herndon Avenue and Golden State Boulevard in northwest Fresno carrying a yellow bag, armed with a big knife and a replica handgun while wearing a blue “Transformers” mask. He went to the counter and demanded money, Dyer said.
