A good Samaritan could be facing legal issues after the mother of an armed robber says the man used excessive force

By

FRESNO, Calif. – A man police call a Good Samaritan may face a lawsuit after injuring the alleged robber he thwarted, reports CBS affiliate KGPE.

In July, Fresno Police say 30-year old Ryan Flores used a gun and tried to rob a Starbucks. Cregg Jerri, 58, stepped in to stop the crime, and the two got into a fight. Both men were hurt, but the Flores family said their son suffered 17 stab and slash wounds and plans on suing Jerri for excessive force.

Flores is currently in jail facing a felony attempted robbery charge. His mother, Pamela Chimienti, said the family does not condone what he allegedly did, but she said Flores should not have been attacked the way he was.
