WOW! A STARBUCKS patron, of ALL people, fought off a robber in a freaking Transformers mask (HAHA) who attempted this with a knife and a fake gun.
Cregg Jerri, who is nearly 60, can be seen in the video below struggling with Ryan Flores, the would-be robber. In the video, Flores announces his intention to rob the coffee store and flashes his “gun” and knife to Mr. Jerri. Then, Jerri sneaks up behind Flores and…
What goes through someones head when this sort of thing happens? You know? Cregg Jerri, one can only assume, realized the gun was fake and waited for his moment. Though many others would say something like “just let them get the money and leave” there’s still something to be said for these heroics.
As reported by Fox News:
California police released video showing a Starbucks patron struggling with a would-be robber in a Transformers mask who tried to stage a hold-up with a knife and toy gun.
Police credited Cregg Jerri, 58, with thwarting the robbery at a Fresno Starbucks Thursday.
“There’s probably not very many people in America who would do what Cregg Jerri did last night,” Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said Friday, according to KSEE-TV. “It was incredibly heroic and the way most people would think that they would respond but may not have the courage to respond.”
Police said the man in the Transformer mask was 30-year-old Ryan Flores.
The video begins with Flores announcing a robbery. He shows the gun to a barista and then the knife.
Next, Jerri is seen sneaking up from behind and bashing Flores over the head with a chair.
