Johnson said he had become friends with Vergara four or five days before his assault. He said he had stayed with her. He said he believes he was attacked first by her former boyfriend.
His recall of the attack differs in some points from what the police investigation determined. He said Tuesday he was attacked at Vergara's house. Police said he had stayed with Vergara but was assaulted and tattooed at the Oklahoma City home of Hodges' mother. Police said Vergara took him there.
Police identified Dellert as a tattoo artist who also is known as Buddha. Police seized four tattoo guns, nine tattoo needles and 17 bottles of tattoo ink from him April 26 in Midwest City.
Detective Abel reported both women admitted they used a stun gun to shock Johnson in the genitals. He reported the women said Provence was the one who struck the victim at the lake with a baseball bat.
One of the women claims Johnson tried to rape her, police and a prosecutor said.
“There was no evidence to support that,” said Suit, the Del City police spokesman. “But, even if there was, the proper action is to make a police report, not take matters into your own hands.”
Police and the victim's relatives say Johnson has a diminished mental capacity that existed before the beating.
