In a report, suspect David Davis, 21, said he was sitting down for a haircut in a barber shop when the victim approached him in an "aggressive manner."

David then allegedly grabbed a pair of scissors and stabbed the victim's back.

Police said the victim, also 21, was taken to the Stamford Hospital for his wound.

They said Davis was earlier under custody when they initially found he was wanted for failing to appear in court.

Police, however, charged him based on the stabbing incident.

Davis is now being held on US $5,000 bond. He is due in court March 22 (March 21, in Manila).

To add up to his 'bad hair day,' Afro-haired Davis had to pose in his mug shot with his haircut apparently unfinished.
