(CBS/AP) STAMFORD, Connecticut - David Davis had a bad hair day, and also a bad crime day, to hear Connecticut police tell it.

They say the 21-year-old New Haven man was mid-haircut at a Stamford apartment, when he grabbed scissors and slashed another man in the back.

The Stamford Advocate reports that Davis was arrested soon afterward when officers with a police dog found him in an apartment nearby. A police mug shot shows Davis with thick hair sticking up from only one side of his head (ed note: look left).

Stamford police Sgt. Cory Caserta says Davis was arraigned Wednesday on an assault charge, and was being held on $5,000 bond.

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

The stabbing victim, also 21, was taken to Stamford Hospital to receive treatment for the wound in his back.
