The row escalated when the barber tried to lock the unhappy man in the Diamond barbershop in the Bronx, with the man’s wife and friend coming to his defense, and striking the barber with a baseball bat.
But the store worker told NBC4 that the barber, who was new in the store, swung for the client himself and ‘roughed him up.’
They said others in the shop offered to pay, and that store workers themselves told the man to leave without paying. The barber was later fired.
The attack left the hairdresser with a broken elbow and in need of 15 stitches.
