TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- An Oklahoma suspect accused of robbing another man at knifepoint has been arrested after the victim described his attacker's distinctive facial tattoos, including a pair of horns and an anti-police obscenity.

Tulsa police officer Leland Ashley says 27-year-old Paul Wayne Terry was arrested Saturday on a complaint of robbery with a dangerous weapon. He's being held on $100,000 bail.

Ashley says the victim told police that Terry and a woman knocked on his apartment door on Friday, forced their way inside, and that Terry threatened to stab him if he didn't turn over his wallet. He told police that Terry had horns tattooed on his forehead.

Ashley says Terry was arrested the next day, adding: "He wasn't hard to identify."

Jail records don't indicate if Terry has an attorney.
