The man Philadelphia cops call “The Swiss Cheese Pervert” has been collared by police at gunpoint at his home.
Norristown, Pa. police arrested Christopher Pagano, 41, after an intensive investigation by law enforcement gave them “probable cause” that he was the suspect harassing local women with his cheesy sexual propositions.
Paganao allegedly drove around town and approached women brandishing a piece of cheese and asking them if they would like to massage his genitals with Swiss cheese.
The Philadelphia Police Department’s Special Victims Unit told media that Pagano was the indeed “subject” of their investigation.
Court documents and a mugshot from 2009 reveal Pagano had prior arrest involving cheese and sex.
The legal docs say that the alleged perv had been arrested after, law enforcement said, he “removed a large block of cheese from his pocket” and then asked a random woman on the street if he could give her “$20 to rub the Swiss cheese on his penis.”
Pagano pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in 2009 but a solicitation charge against him was dismissed.
Pagano has previously denied that he is the man who has been driving around Philadelphia in the past few weeks propositioning women to pleasure him with cheese slices.
Philadelphia Magazine reported that in 2006 Pagano was also arrested and charged with solicitation and disorderly conduct.
Detective James Angelucci, the arresting officer in both the 2006 and 2009 cases, told the mag, “I believe cheese was on the menu, but I’m not completely sure. If my memory serves me, it was Swiss.”
Pagano posted 10 percent of $30,000 early Friday morning after being arraigned on stalking, indecent exposure and harassment charges. He is docketed to return to court next month.
