His claim? The Good Samaritan stabbed him 'too many' times with his own knife.
A 30-year-old man who allegedly used a gun during an attempted robbery at a California Starbucks now plans to sue the good Samaritan who stepped in to stop the crime, according to local reports.
Back in July, Ryan Flores attempted to rob a Starbucks when Cregg Jerri, 58, attacked him. Surveillance video from the scene shows the suspect wearing a Transformers mask and threatening a barista. Seconds later, Jerri picked up a metal chair and hit the suspect in the back.
During the altercation, Flores stabbed Jerri in the neck. Jerri eventually wrestled the knife away from Flores and stabbed the suspect multiple times, according to police.
While police called Jerri a "hero," the suspect's mother said her son is a victim, the Fresno Bee reported.
"He has 17 total stab wounds, lacerations, and defensive wounds," Pamela Chimienti told local TV station KSEE.
What's Ryan Flores claim? Cregg Jerri stabbed him 'too many' times with his own knife.
