Bloody brawl over a blackhead at the hairdressers
All Zabit H. (29) had come in for was a shave, but then suddenly the barbers brother came up to the mirror and started squeezing out a blackhead ...
The outraged customer ran outside to his car, fetched out a vacuum cleaner tube and started to lay into the barber Okan K. (20) with it. The latter responded by slashing him in the face with his open razor. Covered in blood, the customer ran outside and got into his Opel Ascona, intending to drive it into the front window of the salon.

Then the police arrived and took him away – unshaved.
