Starbucks hero could be sued by suspect

Posted: Updated:
California (KWWL) -

No good deed goes unpunished.

One man might be thinking that today.

After stopping an armed robbery, he might be sued by the suspect.

It all happened at a Starbucks in California.

A man walked in wearing a mask before pulling out a knife and gun.

He didn't count on a customer stepping in.

The customer grabbed a chair and hit the man with it before they fought each other.

Now, the suspect might sue him because he ended up with 17 stab wounds.

"Good luck finding an attorney that wants to represent someone who's going to be convicted of robbery. That's not going to sell very well to the jury," said Charles Magill, a legal analyst.
