A man who was stabbed in the head with scissors during a bar fight politely asked hospital staff for help before losing consciousness, Central European News (CEN) reported.

Jonas Acevedo Monroy, 32, was in his local bar in Chihuahua, a city in northwestern Mexico, when Miguel Angel Rodriguez Armendariz, 30, tried to wind him up. When Monroy— nicknamed “The Gentleman” for his good manners— didn’t take the bait, Armendariz allegedly began getting aggressive and abusive.

“Jonas offered to buy the man a drink but the guy pulled out a pair of scissors from his jacket and stabbed him in the head,” Monroy’s friend, Nandor Altamirano Carvajal, 30, told CEN.  "What he was doing with a pair of scissors in his pocket I don't know, it was really shocking."

Armendariz fled the bar and Carvajal helped his bleeding friend to the car and drove him to the hospital.

“Staff were very surprised when the two walked in and the man with the scissors in his head shook the receptionist’s hand and said he seemed to have a small problem and would the receptionist mind helping him,” a hospital spokesman told CEN. "At first we thought it was some sort of joke, but then he fainted and we rushed him into emergency.”

Monroy had been stabbed in the upper-left side of his skull and the scissors had penetrated his parietal brain lobe.

A police spokesman told CEN they arrested the alleged assailant and he is currently in custody.
