NEWBERG, OR (KPTV) -

Doctors have treated at least two Newberg High School students for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections after police say they received tattoos from a classmate.

Stephen Lister, 18, faces 10 counts of performing services in a field of practice without a license, three counts of third-degree sex abuse, two counts of third-degree sodomy and three counts of third-degree rape.

Newberg-Dundee police officers began investigating Sept. 26 when a Newberg High School nurse first contacted the school's resource officer to say she learned about Lister giving students tattoos.

The school resource officer soon identified 10 victims who showed their tattoos and allowed the officer to photograph them. Each victim said Lister gave them the tattoo at his apartment on Haworth Street on separate occasions, police said.

A week later, detectives arrested Lister after two 15-year-old girls came forward and confirmed he had sex with them.

On Thursday, another student came forward and disclosed that Lister had also given her a tattoo. Police urge parents to have their children checked out by a doctor if they notice any recent tattoos.

During the investigation, detectives found 20 photographs of homemade tattoos on Lister's phone.

Lister remains behind bars in the Yamhill County Jail.
