Justin Richardson

RICHMOND, Ky. (WKYT) - Richmond police have been searching for 31 year old Justin Richardson since February when he allegedly tattooed three young children against their will.

Police say Richardson showed up at the children's home to tattoo their father. We spoke to the father, Jeremiah Jones, who told us he left the room for a minute and when he came back, Richardson was holding down his daughter and tattooing her arm.
Police say Richardson tattooed small circles on all three children, ages six, seven and nine.

Richardson was arrested yesterday on three counts of first degree criminal abuse and one count of a felon in possession of a firearm.
