Police in Oklahoma arrested a man and charged him with robbery based on detailed information of his facial tattoos given by the victim. The tattoos included an obscene word over his eyebrow and devil horns on his forehead.
Tulsa police spokesman Leland Ashley said that, after only a few hours into the investigation, Paul Wayne Terry, 27, was arrested for robbing a man at knifepoint. Police note that the distinctive facial tattoos described by the victim made the investigation fairly easy to conclude.
Terry is seen in a mugshot sporting tattoos of devil horns on his forehead, the word “F**K” over his right eye and “COPS” over his left, as well as a pair of lips on his left cheek and Nazi “SS” markings under his right eye.
“He wasn’t hard to identify,” officer Ashley noted drily.
Along with Terry, police arrested Sonja Moro, 29, for aiding the suspect in his crime. Moro is the ex-girlfriend of the victim.
Police say that Terry and Moro knocked on the victim’s apartment door at around 5PM on Friday, December 18, and forced their way inside. Once inside, the pair robbed the victim of his wallet and threatened him with a knife, the Tulsa World reports.
The suspect was charged with a complaint of robbery with a dangerous weapon and is being held on a $100,000 bond.
This isn’t the only charge the suspect has faced recently. In June, Terry pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery, malicious injury to property, and interfering with an emergency telephone call. At that time, he was given three suspended one-year sentences to run concurrently.
