Starbucks robber, Ryan Flores, sentenced to four years

FRESNO, Calif. -- Ryan Flores was found guilty last month on two charges after he attempted to rob a Starbucks in Fresno with a fake gun and a knife before being injured by a good Samaritan.

Flores was sentenced to four years in prison on Wednesday morning, but will be eligible for parole in 2019.

Flores walked into a Starbucks in July wearing a Transformers mask with a built-in voice changer. He pointed a replica gun, then a knife at the cashier and told her to give him all of his money.

That's when Cregg Jerri stepped in and crashed a chair over Flores' back.

In the end, both Flores and Jerri were injured.

Flores has threatened to sue Jerri for his injuries.
