Chris Pagano, 41, was arrested outside his home on Noble Street near Airy in Norristown early yesterday by officers from the borough’s police department and detectives from Philadelphia police’s Special Victims Unit.
The suspected dubbed the “Swiss Cheese Pervert” was being sought for a week after he was reportedly driving up to women while naked and soliciting them to masturbate him with a slice of Swiss Cheese.
In 2006, Pagano was arrested by two undercover Norristown police officers during a prostitution sting after offering them “$20 to wrap Swiss cheese around his penis and masturbate him.
Three years later, a Norristown woman told police Pagano accosted her in the wee hours of the morning on Airy Street, not far from Pagano’s home. He produced a block of Swiss cheese and offered her $20 to rub it on his penis, according to the affidavit in that incident.
In both cases, Pagano was charged with criminal solicitation and disorderly conduct. He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, and the solicitation charges were dismissed, court records show.
Pagano has been charged with stalking, indecent exposure and related offenses stemming from three incidents.
