Could silly scissoring replace happy slapping as the new guerrilla teen attack? In Des Moines, Iowa, there has been a report of an assault with intent to tonsure, involving an older teenage girl who suddenly and randomly began chopping off portions of another girl’s hair. When the victim tried to stop the attack, she was cut on the hand and face.
Officers then interviewed the female suspect, also an 18-year-old. She claimed it was the other student who picked up the scissors and began furiously cutting her hair. The suspect was missing “a large quadrant of hair from the front of her head,” according to a police report.
