Police placed four suspects in custody Tuesday in connection with reports that a 52-year-old man was forcibly tattooed with obscene words and offensive images.

Officers from the 15th District reportedly called the Northeast Detectives at 10 a.m. Tuesday after responding to a call from the 52-year-old man at his home on the 3100 block of Brighton Street in Mayfair

The man told police that on Sunday at about 3 p.m., he was physically restrained and possibly assaulted by "housemates" at his house, police said.


The man was unable to escape the home, reports say.

Three suspects then allegedly used a tattoo gun to permanently write inappropriate words and pictures on both of the man's arms.

At press-time police were obtaining search warrants and had four suspects in custody awaiting possible criminal charges.
