An assault victim who had “RAPEST” forcibly tattooed on his forehead was arrested Thursday night after an Oklahoma City police officer found cocaine on him, police reported.

The attack in April on Stetson Johnson, 18, of Oklahoma City, attracted national attention.

He was restrained, forcibly tattooed and shocked in the genitals with stun guns at an Oklahoma City house. He then was taken to a Del City lake and beaten unconscious with a baseball bat.

Two women and two men were arrested. They were sentenced to prison in June after reaching plea deals with prosecutors.

One woman told police they tattooed him because he tried to have sex with her at her house while she slept, according to police reports. The tattoo “RAPEST” apparently is a misspelling of “rapist.”

Within days of the attack, Johnson got a tattoo resembling a bar code on his forehead to cover up “RAPEST.” After his case was publicized, he accepted an offer of free laser treatments to have the tattoos removed.

The bar code tattoo remains visible in an Oklahoma County jail photo taken after his arrest. An officer reported stopping Johnson because he was riding a bicycle at night without lights. The officer said Johnson had a short straw and a baggie of cocaine.

He was released from jail Tuesday night on a personal recognizance bond.
