A robber wearing an Optimus Prime mask tried to hold up a Starbucks in Fresno, but got stopped by a chair to the back of the head by a 58-year-old customer.
This resulted in a fight between the two, where the customer, Cregg Jerri, got stabbed in the neck. But despite his injuries, he managed to wrestle the knife away from the would-be robber and stab him multiple times.
The robber, Ryan Michael Flores, managed to flee, but was captured and arrested by police.
“There’s probably not very many people in America that would do what Cregg Jerri did last night. That was incredibly heroic and it is the way most people would think that they would respond but may not have the courage to respond,” Chief Jerry Dyer of the Fresno Police Department said.
“It’s not something we recommend; in this case it was a good outcome. No one died as a result of this incident, but very well could have,” he added.
