The man who tried to rob a Fresno Starbucks wearing a Transformers mask only to be stopped by a good Samaritan was sentenced on Wednesday. 

Ryan Flores was sentenced to four years in prison on Dec. 13. Flores was convicted last month on two charges after he tried to rob the Starbucks with a fake gun and a knife in July.

Flores held up a cashier at gunpoint before pulling a knife. Cregg Jerri then stepped in and grabbed Flores from behind. Jerri wrestled him to the ground and held Flores there until police showed up. 

23ABC's sister station, KFSN, reports Flores will be eligible for parole in 2019.
