Tattooed rapper hits man with hammer outside Boca tattoo parlor, police say

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Police say the jealous, tattooed rapper bashed his girlfriend's ex-lover over the head with a hammer outside his favorite tattoo parlor.

On Wednesday, police arrested 30-year-old Kyle Oloughlin, a Delray Beach rapper known as "Kyote." He now stands charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

A Boca Raton Police report recounts the Sept. 30 incident using witness testimonies and surveillance footage:

Just before 6 p.m., a white van pulls up to the parlor in the 5900 block of North Federal Highway.

A woman wearing a New York Giants jersey jumps out of the van with her boyfriend, later identified as Oloughlin, and yells at a man sitting on the shop's front sidewalk.

The man, whom police did not identify, once dated the woman.

"Watch it!" the woman yells. "He's going to kick your a--!"

Oloughlin then walks behind the man and clobbers him in the back of the head with a hammer.

The couple runs off, but the victim stumbles into Evil Ink and heads to the bathroom, where he cleans his bleeding head.

Minutes later, the rapper returns with the hammer. As he looks through the shop window, a black Cadillac pulls up behind him.

Four men, all sporting tattoos, get out of the car and talk to Oloughlin. It's unknown what the rapper says, but the men start stretching their arms, as if they're getting ready to lift weights — or fight.

Two men go through front door and deadbolt it. Oloughlin and two other men go through the back door

When the victim steps out of the bathroom, he meets a fury of fists and feet. The five men punch and kick the man from the back of the parlor to the front. The man falls through the locked door, shattering and splattering glass to the sidewalk where he lands.

Bleeding from his back, the walks into J & G Glass next door and tells the owner to call police. The man later shows police Oloughlin's Facebook profile, which he had found on his ex-girlfriend's page.

"Tattoos on my neck and face, all eyes on me in a public place. On my neck got the outline of my state. Left hand, left lane, 95, interstate," Oloughlin raps in a music video of a song titled "She love my Tattoos," filmed at Evil Ink. "She love my tattoos, she think I'm so cool."

A week before the hammer attack, Oloughlin filmed a freestyle rap video at Evil Ink with fellow rapper "Cracka Black."

When they finish rapping, Oloughlin leans toward the camera and pulls his eyelids down with his fingertips.

"Game over," Oloughlin says, one word tattooed on each eyelid.

Oloughlin remained in the Palm Beach County Jail on Thursday without bond.
