She put him in his place then really turned the tables…
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.
Police say they arrived just as Carrillo was making his fourth return to the coffee shop.
They said they found him to be in possession of a loaded gun, brass knuckles, a knife and thousands of dollars in cash.
Carrillo was a regular at the coffee shop, according to Marissa Pinedo, a colleague of the victim.
She said that he had never been a problem before, but that it’s hard to know what to expect from customers.
‘You never know what you are going to get when people walk up to the window,’ she said.
‘Sometimes people get the wrong impression because of what we wear. They want us to dance or strip for them and get offended when we say “No.”‘
Carrillo was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, possession of loaded and concealed firearm, possession of a dirk or dagger, possession of brass knuckles and making criminal threats.
