A complaint about a bad haircut escalated into a barbershop brawl that left the Bronx hairdresser with a broken elbow.
Witnesses told the NYPD that the 53-year-old barber refused to let the client leave after he refused to pay for the haircut.
Police say the client retaliated by hitting the barber with a brush.
The dispute escalated outside.
A second person hit the barber twice, and a third person struck him with a baseball bat.
All three suspects drove off in a car with New Jersey plates.
Anyone with information about the men should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
