David Davis, 21, was getting his afro cut off when he allegedly slashed another man with a pair of scissors. Police in Stamford, Connecticut, arrested Davis shortly after the incident — before the hairdresser had time to finish the cut, the Stamford Advocate reports.
Davis had to pose for the mug shot with half an afro. Police said Davis told them he was getting a haircut when a man approached him in an “aggressive manner”, so he picked up a pair of scissors to protect himself.
The victim, a 21-year-old man, was taken to hospital with a wound to the right side of his upper back but has since been released. Stamford police lieutenant James Matheny told the Advocate the victim was wearing a heavy jacket so it was hard to say how serious his wounds were, but there was a “considerable amount” of blood on the victim’s clothing.
Davis was charged with first degree assault and is being held on a $4950 bail bond. He will appear in court on March 22nd.
