A jailed Starbucks robbery suspect thwarted by a customer may sue the man who stopped the crime.

Ryan Michael Flores was arrested in July after he allegedly tried to take cash from a Starbucks in Fresno, California. Cregg Jerri, a customer at the store, tried to stop him, KABC reported.

A video of the robbery appears to show Jerri hit the robber over the head with a chair and grapple with him. Jerri was stabbed in the neck as he tried to grab Flores’ knife, Fox News said. When Jerri did get the knife, he reportedly stabbed Flores repeatedly with it.

Flores’ mother Pamela Chimienti thinks Jerri went "from a food Samaritan to a vigilante," she told YourCentralValley.com. "Stabbing somebody that many times, it doesn’t take that many stab wounds to get somebody to succumb to you."

Flores is in jail awaiting trial and was able to recover from the wounds.

Flores’ father reported his son was stabbed 17 times, Fox News reported. Flores has not confirmed the lawsuit.

The Fresno police chief called the lawsuit “ludicrous,” pointing out that Jerri feared for his life during the incident and will not face criminal charges, YourCentralValley.com reported.

Twitter users sided with Jerri almost exclusively.
