Alleged “‘Swiss Cheese Pervert’” and Norristown resident Chris Pagano was arrested around noon on Thursday after being accused of propositioning women around Philadelphia with swiss cheese, according to NBC10.
It is alleged that Pagano, 41, drove up to two different women and asked if they would like to receive payment for watching him place swiss cheese on his genitals.
Norristown police told Patch that they brought Philadelphia police, who had a warrant for Pagano’s arrest, to his Norristown home, where Philadelphia police arrested him and took him to Philadelphia.
A representative from the Philadelphia police Special Victims Unit told Patch this afternoon that, at this point, police have Pagano in custody and are in the process of lodging formal charges. Later, they will do his intake.
Pagano is suspected of approaching women in both Montgomery county and Philadelphia.
According to online court documents, in 2009 he was arrested and charged with patronizing prostitutes and disorderly conduct.
In the affidavit of probable cause in that case, an alleged victim accused Pagano of approaching her while she was walking and offering her $20 to rub on his penis a block of cheese that he was holding. According to the woman, as she ran away he offered her more money.
