The man suspected of being the Swiss cheese pervert was arrested at his Philadelphia home Thursday, after an investigation into his harassment of a local woman led police to his address.
The 41-year-old has allegedly been approaching women asking them if they would like to see Swiss cheese on his genitals.
Chris Pagano, the man suspected of being the cheese pervert, has denied the charges against him.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” Pagano said. “Sometimes people confuse me with somebody else.”
Priscilla, Pagano’s latest alleged victim, came to police after the man approached her while she was stopped at an intersection. He asked why she had Swiss cheese in her car, then proceeded to ask if she would put the cheese on his genitals.
At first, Priscilla, who asked that her last name not be mentioned, thought he was joking. However, when she began to drive away, she saw the man pull down his pants.
“Now I’m freaked out because I know it wasn’t a joke,” she said.
Police confirmed Thursday night that Pagano was charged with stalking and harassment as well as open lewdness.
