TULSA, Okla. (CBS Houston) — Three men are accused of stapling a victim’s lips shut during a robbery.

Tulsa World reports that 21-year-old Angel Rodriguez and 19-year-old Mario Mediano, along with another suspect, held four people at gunpoint, including a 2-year-old child, at a Tulsa apartment early Monday morning.

The suspects reportedly bound the residents with duct tape and demanded cash and money. Police say they ended up stealing phones, wallets, tablets and a purse.

They also allegedly stapled one of the victim’s lips shut with a staple gun.

“After one of the suspects found the carpet staple gun in the victim’s apartment (he) stapled his mouth one time with one staple,” Tulsa Police Cpl. Brandon Disney told KRMG-TV.

The man was treated at the scene for his injuries.

Disney stated that Rodriguez and Mediano were later arrested at a local Whataburger and face possible charges of first-degree robbery, armed robbery and stolen vehicle complaints.

The third suspect currently remains at-large.
