I'm not sure I'd be willing to risk my life for Starbucks . . . with all the money I've given them over the years, THEY should be risking their lives for ME.
A 30-year-old guy named Ryan Flores walked into a Starbucks in Fresno, California on Wednesday around 5:30 P.M. He was wearing an Optimus Prime mask from "Transformers" and he had a toy gun . . . and a REAL knife.
He demanded the cash from the register, and the cashier started giving it to him . . . until a 58-year-old customer named Cragg Jerri decided to step in.
Apparently Cragg's a regular there, so he picked up a metal chair, SLAMMED Ryan in the back with it . . . and then started brawling with him.
Eventually he wrestled the knife away. He wound up getting stabbed in the process, but he ALSO got a few nice stabs in on Ryan too.
Ryan was taken to the hospital, and once he's out, he'll be facing charges for attempted armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
