A customer of a Starbucks in Fresno, California, USA, has been hailed as a courageous hero after he fearlessly stopped an armed robbery of the coffee shop he was in, by only using a metal chair.

That's when the customer, later identified as Craig Jerri, saw what was happening, grabbed a metal chair and hit Flores over the back with it.

The suspect, 30-year-old Ryan Michael Flores, has threatened the barista with a fake gun, before exhibiting a knife.

58-year-old Cregg Jerri is seen sitting at a table, working on his iPad.

The footage from the Fresno shop on Wednesday first shows the robber pointing a gun at an employee before pulling out a knife and thrusting it toward her menacingly as he holds out a yellow bag with his other hand. Investigators say Jerri was stabbed in the neck during the struggle, but he managed to wrestle away the knife and stab Flores several times. The suspect eventually fled from the Starbucks, but police apprehended and arrested the suspect soon after. He will be sent to jail and face felony charges when he recovers.

"It's not something we recommend".

Police officials said Jerri did need six staples in his neck to mend the stab wound he suffered, but he is resting and is expected to make a full recovery. "It was simply heroic", said the officer of the police force of Fresno, Jerry Dyer, as reported by NBC News. No one died as a result of this incident, but very well could have.
