About 8:30 pm on Saturday, the entertainer had just finished cutting a customer’s hair and walked on the outside of the Barber Shop. He then went to a dark corner of the Plaza to urinate, when he was immediately attached from behind by two men. One of whom stabbed him in the neck and throat with a ratchet knife.
In order to save his own life, the entertainer grabbed hold of the knife, which resulted in sever cuts to his hand, but he still single handedly fought off his attackers.
