A barber shop worker had a hot drink thrown over her after a man was told that she could not cut his hair. 

The staff member from Zena The Barbers in the George Moore Community Centre on George Moore Road was assaulted at around 8.20am on May 18. 

The man became aggressive after staff said that there were no appointments available. 

The man then threw a hot drink at the woman before pushing her against the wall and verbally abusing her.
