Man Holding Chair Stops Robber in ‘Transformers’ Mask from Starbucks Hold-Up

The California man who stepped in to stop a Starbucks robbery, and took a knife to the neck in the process, witnessed a bizarre turn of events when he was later accused of excessive force by the would-be thief. It happened last year, when a robber wearing a mask and brandishing a gun and knife held up a Starbucks location in Fresno. Out of nowhere, good Samaritan Cregg Jerri grabbed a chair and struck the robber with it. Jerri said he had to act for the safety of the baristas in the store.
