Adrian Gomez Accused of Attempted Murder by Haircut

A 23-year-old man giving a haircut at his Garden Grove home allegedly stabbed and cut his client.

Fantastic Stabs, anyone? … Huh, huh? … Hello?

Anyway, Adrian Gomez was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder Wednesday, according to Garden Grove police.


The incident happened just after 3 p.m. Tuesday at Gomez's residence in the 10000 block of Imperial Avenue, according to a statement from Garden Grove Police Lt. Ben Stauffer. Stanton 23-year-old Jeff Valenz went there for a scheduled appointment and for unknown reasons the desired trim included being stabbed in the neck, left elbow and left shoulder.

If I were Valenz, I'd think twice about leaving a nice tip after that. Actually, he didn't have time to think about that, going from the barber's chair to his driver's seat, frantically driving away while calling police, who caught up with him near (Paul?) Mitchell School near Trask and Taft.

Officers assessed Valenz's bloody wounds and had him taken to the UC Irvine Medical Center emergency room for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. He was released from the Orange facility Wednesday morning.

Valnez had let cops know who sliced him up and where he lived. Officers and the SWAT team went to Imperial Avenue, but Gomez was not home, Stauffer noted. Someone later contacted police to say Gomez had returned to the residence, where he was popped about 12:15 p.m. Wednesday, Stauffer said.

OK, if not Fantastic Stabs, how about Not-so-Supercuts?
