A Florida man allegedly failed two car hijackings in Jacksonville after the owners brandished their firearms.

Christopher Raymond Hill, 36, was arrested on Friday after he allegedly robbed a liquor store, then attempted to flee by carjacking two different people at knife-point, according to Fox 30.

After leaping over the counter of a Walmart liquor store and stealing money from the cash register, Hill attempted to flee in his SUV, police said. When the engine wouldn’t start, he allegedly asked Scott Reardean for a ride. Reardean refused and Hill pulled out a knife. Reardean was able to reach for his firearm and aimed it at Hill, who then fled.

Hill reportedly ran and got into the passenger seat of a car at a Starbucks drive-thru. The female driver exited her vehicle and got her Ruger pistol from the car’s trunk, and pointed it at Hill, who then fled a second time, reported WSVN.

Police found Hill barricaded inside the bathroom of a Supercuts, where he surrendered. (RELATED: Gun Shop Gives Teachers Free Firearm Training [VIDEO])

Hill was arrested on charges of strong arm robbery, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, trespassing, and carjacking with a firearm or deadly weapon.

“These guys can talk about banning assault rifles and banning guns, but when it comes and happens to them, they’re going to wish they had one,” Reardean told News4Jax. “I’m glad I had [my gun] on me.”

Reardean was wearing an AR-15 t-shirt when he was interviewed.
