    New Haven man is in the hospital and due in court later this month after police said he stabbed someone while getting his hair cut in Stamford. 

    David Davis, 21 of New Haven, was sitting inside an apartment on Henry Street in Stamford's south end just before 12:30 p.m., getting a haircut, when a man he had been arguing with approached him, police said.

    Davis thought the other person was going to harm him, so he picked up a pair of scissors and slashed the other in the back, police said.

    Patrol and canine officers later found Davis in an apartment and took him into custody.

    The victim was treated at a local hospital for a back wound where he is expected to recover, police said.

    Davis was charged with first-degree assault and is being held on a $5,000 bond.

    He is due in court on March 22.

    He was also wanted on a second-degree failure to appear warrant for a previous arrest with a court set bond of $750.

    No information is available on the victim. NBC Connecticut has left a message with Stamford police.
