A wild fight between a Fresno Starbucks customer and a knife-wielding robber was caught on surveillance video, showing how a 58-year-old man who police Chief Jerry Dyer called a “courageous hero” put his own life at risk to thwart the crime.
Both hero Cregg Jerri, 58, and suspect Ryan Michael Florez, 30, were stabbed during the fight Thursday that lasted for about a minute. Florez got away and later tried to tell police he was himself a victim of a robbery.
Friday, Dyer said police got their man ? Florez. Dyer showed the video at a news conference and said that Florez will be charged with attempted armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon when he is booked into Fresno County Jail.
For now, Florez is in the hospital. He will be there for a few days recovering from stab wounds he received with his own knife during the fight with Jerri.
Jerri needed a few staples to close a stab wound he received during the fight.
The confrontation happened just before 5 p.m. Thursday. Florez entered the Starbucks at Herndon Avenue and Golden State Boulevard in northwest Fresno carrying a yellow bag, armed with a big knife and a replica handgun while wearing a blue “Transformers” mask. He went to the counter and demanded money, Dyer said.
Jerri, 58, was seated at a table using a tablet. Soon after Florez made his demands, Jerri grabbed a chair and slammed it on Florez’s back twice.
A fight ensued and eventually Florez stabbed Jerri in the neck. Jerri got hold of Florez’s knife and stabbed Florez in the face and torso.
A bobcat recorded attacking a German shepherd and a bystander in Arizona Sunday, has tested positive for rabies, according to KTVK-TV.
According to the Daisy Mountain Fire Department, a man was walking his dog, a German Shepherd near the County Club area when a bobcat started chasing the pair.
“The German Shepherd was able to protect both itself and its owner from the bobcat when a bystander stopped to aid the man and his dog,” Daisy Mountain Public Information Officer Brent Fenton said.
In a video taken by another person in the area, it appears the bystander grabbed the bobcat and tried to help pull it away from the dog at the same time the dog’s owner was trying to pull the pup away from the bobcat.
That’s when the animal bit him and the man swung the bobcat around trying to get him off.
He was bitten on his hand and arm. The bobcat then ran off into a nearby storm drain.
“It’s very bizarre. This is very uncharacteristic for bobcats,” said Brent Fenton.
Firefighters wrapped the man’s bites and gave first aid on the scene. The bystander drove himself to the hospital and was told he would need a rabies shot.
