The man told police he was just getting his hair cut Monday, when one of the salon’s other barbers started giving him shit. The two apparently have some sort of long running feud-type thing going on. He knows the barber from around the neighborhood, he told police, but the two certainly aren’t friends. He also told police the barber had assaulted him on previous occasions, but he never reported it.
Anyways, the alleged victim had had enough of the man’s crap that day, and after he was finished in the chair, asked him to kindly knock it the fuck off. The mean barber reportedly responded with a death threat of sorts, in addition to threats of a stabbin’ and a punchin’. And with that, the victim said, the barber grabbed a pair of scissors and attempted to stab him in the gut. Fortunately, the scissors didn’t make it through the fabric of the man’s coat.
According to the police report, the barber then went for the crotch. The victim’s pants ripped and the scissors made contact with his testicles. No word on whether blood or vomit was spilled.
The victim left the shop and headed for his car. He told police the barber followed him outside and punched him in the face. It was then that the man called 911.
The salon was already closed when officers arrived on scene, so they were unable to speak to the barber. *blinks* So a “Sorry, we’re closed” sign is all it takes to get away with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon? Be back later… heading to the office supply store.
