Police: Man Arrested For Snipping Dollar Tree Shopper’s Hair

Hide your ponytails and send those braids home, folks: There just might be someone out there looking to snip off your locks while you shop. Police say they’ve arrested a man in Oregon accused of cutting the hair of one of his fellow Dollar Tree shoppers.

It sounds like he’s been here before — the suspect has a history of indecent acts, including stroking women’s hair while touching himself on buses in Oregon, reports KPTV.com.

the 27-year-old suspect was arrested this time after cops said he cut a woman’s hair at a Dollar Tree store. He allegedly followed a 31-year-old woman around the store and snipped her hair with scissors as she waited to check out, and then quickly left the store.

Officers apprehended him later, and he was arrested on charges of harassment and parole violation.

In the previous incidents, he was accused of applying glue to women’s hair on the bus before cutting it off and engaging himself in a not-so-private act.
