Although Ryan Michael Flores readily admitted in a jailhouse interview that he was wrong to pull a fake gun and then a knife while masked during the July 21 robbery gone bad at a Starbucks coffee shop in Fresno, California.
The 30-year-old man in jail for a failed robbery attempt at Starbucks is considering suing the good Samaritan who stepped in and stopped him, saying the customer used excessive force.
Flores was arrested in July for trying to steal cash from the Fresno Starbucks when he was stopped by 58-year-old Cregg Jerri, a customer inside the coffee shop.
During the tussle, the suspect was stabbed 17 times. Jerri suffered a stab wound to his neck.

Speaking with ABC 7, Flores’ parents claimed Jerri went too far trying to stop their son from robbing the store.
His mother, Pamela Chimenti, said her son almost died twice in the emergency room from the stab wounds and the family is considering a lawsuit.
In surveillance video from the store, Flores is seen entering the Starbucks wearing a “Transformers” Optimus Prime mask and brandishing a gun.

A struggle ensues and the two men fall to the ground. Jerri was stabbed in the neck, but managed to get the knife away from Flores and stabbed the suspect 17 times. Flores [left], fled the restaurant but was later arrested when people noticed he was bleeding and called police.
Chimenti told the Fresno Bee the wounds her son suffered were “kill strikes.”
“Once you have somebody down, you can’t keep stabbing them,” she said.
Flores told the outlet that he was simply trying to get away from Jerri after getting hit over the head and didn’t mean to stab him.
“I don’t like to judge people, but that’s a lot of stab wounds,” he said.
An attorney for Jerri told the outlet that his client was a “good Samaritan” and he doesn’t think his client will be punished for stepping in.
Flores remains in the Fresno County Jail on charges of second-degree robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
Flores’ mother said her son nearly died in intensive care from the stab wounds and believe he used excessive force. The family is considering a lawsuit.

So far, while Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer has praised Jerri as a hero who stepped up to stop the crime.
In contrast, describing the wounds their son received as “kill strikes.” Flores’ parents, Pamela Chimenti and Mark Flores, say Jerri’s actions were a clear case of excessive force, and Jerri should be charged with committing a more serious offense than their son.
“Once you have somebody down, you can’t keep stabbing them,” she said.
Said Mark Flores: “I understand he (Ryan Flores) robbed the store but (Jerri) stabbed my son 17 times.”
However, Jerri’s lawyer Ty Kharazi, an attorney called on to represent Jerri, said the chances of his client facing penalties are slim.
The suspect’s dad, Mark Flores said “I understand he [Ryan] robbed the store but [Jerri] stabbed my son 17 times.”
To buttress his point, the senior Flores believes that presiding Judge, Wayne Ellison, supported his view that Jerri used too much force in stopping the crime because during an August court hearing, Ellison advised Jerri to “get a lawyer.”
Laughing off that interpretation of the court’s message, Jerri’s attorney, Kharazi, says Mark Flores misunderstood Judge Ellison’s intent, which was to ensure his client’s interests were protected.
“The judge was trying to watch out for” Jerri, said Kharazi.
Added Kharazi: “He [Flores] pulled a gun, the [cashier] starts laughing at him. The he pulls a knife and [Jerri] was hitting him with the chair. [Flores] turns and stabs Jerri … My client is a good Samaritan.”

  1. Reblogged this on Peach6972's Blog and commented:
    Ridiculous, they planning a lawsuit, can you believe it
    Wat your opinion on this?

  2. OK well these new media have gone too far and always take stories they hear and flip them. WATCH VIDEO IN SLOW MOTION PLEASE!!!
    You all will see that Flores didn’t stab Jerri intentionally, look closely and you’ll see that the knife doesn’t touch Jerri until Jerri knocks Flores to the floor then grabs Flores Arm(the one with the knife) and pulls his arm back and got stabbed by mistake then you’ll see Jerri grab it after getting stabbed and then starts stabbing Flores. OK everyone also even when Flores was screaming for his life saying in words “Please stop your killing me I have a baby ” and Jerri continues to stab Flores another 4-5 times, now this news reporter left alot of details out and trust me I have seen video in slow motion more than you can count and Ryan Flores is telling you all the truth and is innocent of Assault with a deadly weapon.

    Thank you,

  3. I can tell by watching the video it won’t matter what you say. You show a gun. Your getting taken down. And I wouldn’t stop either. He had a gun! And a knife. Who knows if he has another and he’s just saying that to get a chance to break free and grab it and attack again. You must be retarded mary. That man was acting on fear and on the moment. It’s too bad but too sad for the robber. And do say other wise is gross and inhuman. The man had no clue what to believe but to stop and believe the man with a gun. Ha
