Man who sent sordid pictures to teen arrested after ‘identified by penis tattoo’
A man who sent sordid images of his genitals to a 16-year-old girl has been arrested after he was identified by a tattoo on his manhood, according to reports.
The words ‘fun size’ are apparently tattooed on the man’s penis and it was this body ink that landed him in custody.
Police officers in Arizona, USA said they have no doubt that they have the right man thanks to the distinctive artwork.
Local news channel Fox 10 reported police in the town of Cottonwood identified the suspect thanks to the graphic nature of the explicit close-up images that clearly show the tattoo’s wording.
Officers said the teenage girl who received the images was left distressed by graphic messages and photos.
Investigators told the television station that 28-year-old Joshua Louis Hillyard was arrested on Thursday afternoon, during a meeting with his probation officer.
The alleged victim reportedly contacted her School Safety Officer, saying she received unsolicited inappropriate pictures and messages from Hillyard, who she knew of prior to the messages being sent.
She told the police she had met Hillyard through an outreach program where he was acting as a mentor.
During an interview with police, Hillyard apparently told officers he knew the victim’s age, but thought the age of consent in Arizona was 16, because that is the law in Montana.
But in Arizona, the age of consent is actually 18 years old.
Police told Fox 10 the suspect is on probation out of Montana and Wyoming, but was transferred to Arizona.
He was reportedly on probation for burglary, fraud, and selling dangerous drugs.
Hillyard has been booked into the Yavapai County Detention Center for a felony count of furnishing harmful materials to a minor.
