CENTERVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man has been charged with tattooing a smiley face and a derogatory word on a 12-year-old girl's arm.

State police tell the Erie Times-News (http://bit.ly/1j7l568) that Randall Charlton III tattooed the girl's left forearm Wednesday night in a Centerville home while she was spending the night.

He faces charges of felony aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a minor, corruption of minors, simple assault and tattooing a minor.

Police say he tattooed the derogatory word above the smiley face.

According to online court records, Charlton was unable to post $20,000 bail and is confined in Crawford County prison.

Court records don't list a lawyer for him.
