Such a powerful story

So Tragic

Barber Andy Mendoza was working in his shop when he saw a young woman waiting to get her hair cut. After noticing a cut on the woman’s face, he sparked up a conversation with her.

‘It was almost closing time one night and I noticed a girl sitting at the other end of the shop,’ barber Andy Mendoza told ‘I wear glasses so my sight wasn’t too focused on her but I did noticed a small cut on her cheekbone. ‘I jokingly asked if she got into a fight. She replied: “my boyfriend tried to kill me”.’

It was probably not the reply that Mendoza was expecting at all. According to the Republican American, the woman, named Chelsea, was the victim of a horrific domestic abuse assault.

Her boyfriend beat, strangled and held a knife to Chelsea’s throat, causing her to fear for her life. He shoved her down a flight of stairs, spraining her ankle. He tried to break her fingers and then he cut a chunk of her hair off her head after accusing her of cheating on him.
