When this gunman held up a barista dressed in a bikini at a coffee shop, he never expected what she was going to do next. Do you think that she did the right thing? Or do you think she should have defended herself in a different way?
A gun-toting would-be killer was put in his place Sunday when a bikini-clad barista he threatened to shoot told him to wait his turn, according to police.
Jorge Carrillo, 43, had been to south Modesto’s Pink Pantherz Espresso – a drive-thru coffee shop whose staff are all clad in bikinis and lingerie – twice early on Sunday, but returned a third time at 1:30pm with a gun, according to police.
Carrillo is alleged to have then pointed the weapon at the head of the woman who was serving him and threatened to shoot her – but she just told him to get in line, the Modesto Bee reported.
The woman, who is not being named, said to the gunman that she needed to serve another customer on the other side of the coffee shop, and turned her back on him.
But it was a ruse: the quick-thinking barista took the chance to leave the small building and run to the Family Dollar store next door, where she called police.
Police say they arrived just as Carrillo was making his fourth return to the coffee shop.
