CLIFTON - Police are hunting for an attacker after a young barber, Dennis Guillen, was slashed in Clifton. It is believed that the attacker may have chosen his victim at random.

Click 'NEXT' to see surveillance of the attack.

Surveillance video shows the vicious attack at Urban Cuts on Lexington Avenue. The shop was closed, but Guillen was still inside. He had locked up and was waiting for a ride home when a stranger came knocking asking for a haircut.

After Guillen repeatedly told the man no, he says the attacker stunningly and swiftly slashed him across the face and chest. Guillen says he fumbled with his blood-covered phone trying to dial 911 and then staggered outside, hoping to get a driver or anyone to help.

Investigators say they don't know who the man is in the video or the weapon he used. They also don't have a motive, leading them to believe the haircut demand was just a ploy to get Guillen to open the door. Anyone with information is asked to call Clifton detectives at 973-470-5908
