An Arlington man who woke up with a penis drawn on his face in permanent marker is accused of assaulting his roommate, leading to “extensive injuries” to the victim’s face, police said.
James Denham Watson woke up around 5:30 a.m. Saturday in the 3100 block of North 17th Street to find the male genitalia on his cheek, leading to the assault, police said.
The roommate was treated for his injuries at Virginia Hospital Center.
Officers responded to the hospital around 7 a.m., when the roommate decided to press charges.
Watson, 31, was charged with malicious wounding and held without bond, police said.
