Updated on Nov. 24 at 3:58 p.m. E.T: Oneal Ron Morris Re-Arrested, Bond Set at $15K; Second Suspect Charged
A fake surgeon who managed to evade police for a year has been charged for injecting a toxic concoction into the buttocks of a woman seeking a curvier figure.
Oneal Ron Morris, 30, has been charged with practicing medicine without a license with serious bodily injury. Authorities have found no phone listing for Morris.
Morris was arrested on Friday in Miami-Dade County and released on bond. Morris has been on the run for one year and has an arrest record in Hillsborough County that details three arrests between 2000 and 2002, once for trespassing and twice for grand theft of a motor vehicle.
Authorities say Morris was posing as a plastic surgeon and injected a woman's buttocks with cement, mineral oil and flat-tire sealant.
In Florida, practicing medicine or attempting to practice medicine without a license is a third-degree felony. Anyone caught may face a prison term of up to five years and be fined up to $5,000 per count if convicted, according to Florida laws.
Police say that a woman who was looking to be employed at a night club began looking for someone who could perform plastic surgery on her for cheap so that she could get a curvier figure. The woman came across a woman posing as a doctor who filled her buttocks with the toxic concoction.
Police say the woman the victim met was Morris, who was born a man, but identifies as a woman. Authorities told The Associated Press that Morris appeared to have performed surgery on herself and may have victimized others who may be too embarrassed to come forward.
The unidentified victim reportedly paid $700 for a series of injections in May 2010 and was referred to Morris by a friend.
Photos of Morris received by the media show a woman with a small frame, groomed hair and eyebrows, pouty lips, round hips and a large backside.
Sgt. Bill Bamford with the Miami Gardens police department told The AP that Morris went from house to house for a year, driving a black Mercedes and has managed to stay out of investigators' sight like a ghost.
Authorities say that an officer drove by one of those possible houses almost every day on his way to work, saw the car outside on Friday and made the arrest soon after.
Bamford said this victim was reluctant to come forward.
A short time later, she develops serious pains in her abdomen, throughout her body, Bamford told WSTP. She knows something's wrong.
The victim's mother had to take her to a hospital on Florida's west coast where doctors alerted the Department of Health, The AP reported.
