Ride-By-Haircuts: A Blessing or a Curse?

The Grave Digger
Scissor-wielding psycho cyclist attacks schoolgirl in ride-by snipping, the headline reads.

A Tokyo man riding a bicycle attacked an elementary school student by suddenly cutting the ten year old girl's hair with a pair of scissors, then sped off.

The victim said the man appeared to be in his 50s. Police are searching for him on suspicion of assault.

At around 3:50 p.m. on Friday, the man riding a bicycle approached the fourth grader ... from behind and suddenly cut her hair with a pair of scissors and fled the scene, local police said.

The girl went home and then visited a local police box with her mother to report the incident. She was on her way home from school when she was attacked.

Link (via Newsvine). Pmgraham dislikes haircuts, and says that he would have considered it a favor. Oh yeah? Think about this one and get back to me.

I bet in Japan they didn't have a "runs with scissors" comment pre-written for report cards. You see what happens when you don't nip this in the bud during early childhood? They progress to bicycles.
