NEW YORK (CBS) Four ruthless young men promised a 14-year-old boy they would stop picking on him if he let them tattoo his buttocks with an image of a penis and the words "poop d**k" -- and then they proceeded to do exactly that, say police.

According to The Smoking Gun, a New Hampshire boy was enticed to a Concord home on May 10, where three Concord High School students and one former student warned the teen that he'd be getting the tattoo "whether he liked it or not," said investigators.

Investigators said the boy asked what would happen if he tried to flee and the bullies told him they'd catch him and beat him up, reported the website.

The victim, a ninth grader, has been "frequenly targeted for ridicule by upper classmen," investigators said, according to The Smoking Gun. They said the victim suffers from "learning disabilities and self-esteem issues."

Police have arrested the four suspects, Donald Wyman, 20, Ryan Fisk, 19, Travis Johnston, 18, and Blake VanNest, 18. A fifth attacker, who is 15, is also expected to be charged.

The alleged bullies are charged with numerous crimes, including assault, endangering the welfare of a minor, criminal threatening, and tattooing without a license, says the website.
