One of Tulsa Police Department's Most Wanted suspects has been arrested. The Northern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force arrested Timothy Paul Perry Jr. at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday in the 5500 block of West Skelly Drive.

Perry was wanted on assault and battery charges after police say he cut a woman with a razor blade and hit her over the head with a bong.

Court records say the assault took place at a south Tulsa apartment January 7, 2014. A woman told police she was asleep in bed when someone else let Perry into her apartment and told him she had stolen about $1,000 in drug money.

The victim told police as she sat up in bed, Perry took a razor blade to her face and cut her cheek, saying, "Not so pretty anymore, are you?" He reportedly also hit her in the head with a pair of needle nose pliers and a marijuana bong.

Perry then kicked her multiple times in the head, assaulting her for about 30 minutes, court documents state.

After the assault, the victim was taken to the hospital and treated for head injuries that affected her vision and hearing, police say. The assault victim knew Perry as "Tommy Andrews," but police say she positively identified Perry as her attacker.

Perry has been charged with assault and battery several times in the past. He was convicted in 2010. Charges were dismissed in 2005 after a prosecution's witness failed to appear in court and in 2007 at the request of the state.

He has had more than one woman file a protective order against him in the past.

Perry was convicted in February, 2013, for possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

The 28-year-old man is being held on a $100,000 bond.
