'Swiss Cheese Pervert' in custody, police say

PHILADELPHIA — Police have arrested a man they believe has been using Swiss cheese to sexually proposition unsuspecting women.

The suspect, identified by authorities as 41-year-old Christopher Pagano of Norristown, was arrested at his home Thursday by officers with Philadelphia’s Special Victims Unit.

Investigators suspect Pagano is the man who has reportedly driven up to women on several occasions and offered them money to put cheese on his genitals and perform a lewd act.

The story went viral after a neighborhood town watch in northeast Philadelphia posted a blurry cellphone picture on its Facebook page of a half-naked man in his car holding up what appears to be cheese. The town watch group dubbed him the “Swiss Cheese Pervert.”

Pagano is expected to face charges of indecent exposure, stalking and harassment.
