A Bridgeport barber known in the community for giving free haircuts to those in need is left without any tools to do his job after he says someone stole his equipment.
EZ Taylor, 52, is well known in Bridgeport for cutting people's hair at no charge.
He says offers free haircuts for young people heading back to school in the fall. He says he also makes the rounds at nursing homes on a regular basis.
"I don't even charge senior citizens. I tell them their money ain't no good because they already paid the way for me," Taylor says. "It's just all about giving back. If you don't put in, you can't take out."

Police say somebody broke into his vehicle Sunday and stole all of his hair cutting equipment worth over $1,000.
As word spread on social media about what happened, people began coming forward to help Taylor replace some of the equipment. However, he says he's still missing about $300 worth of tools.
Still, Taylor says he forgives the thief.
"I forgive them. I can't get no blessings if I don't forgive them," he says.
Police say they're investigating the burglary and ask anyone with information to contact them.
