Conn. man accused of stabbing man during haircut

Police say a man was getting a haircut at an apartment in Stamford, Conn., when he grabbed scissors and slashed another man in the back. David Davis was arrested soon afterward when officers with a police dog found him in a nearby apartment. A police mug shot shows Davis with thick hair sticking up from only one side of his head. The other side of his head appears to be braided.

Stamford police Sgt. Cory Caserta says Davis was arraigned Wednesday on an assault charge. The 21-year-old man from New Haven was being held on $5,000 bond.

Authorities say the victim approached Davis on Tuesday in what he called "an aggressive manner." Davis told investigators he picked up the scissors in self-defense.
