PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Philadelphia police said a suspect in the "Swiss Cheese Pervert" case has a history of exposing himself to women and asking for sex acts involving the cheese.
Police said Chris Pagano, 41, of Norristown, allegedly approached women on at least three occasions in Philadelphia's Mayfair neighborhood and exposed his genitals, the Philadelphia Daily News reported Friday.
Pagano, who was arrested at his Norristown home Thursday by Norristown police and members of the Philadelphia police's Special Victims Unit, allegedly asked the women to perform sex acts on him involving a piece of Swiss cheese, police said.
Pagano was previously arrested in 2006 during a prostitution sting in Norristown when he offered two undercover officers "$20 to wrap Swiss cheese around [his] penis and masturbate him," the arrest report said.
He was arrested in 2009 when he allegedly accosted a woman in the early hours of the morning and offered her $20 to rub a block of Swiss cheese on his penis.
Court records show Pagano pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct charges in both cases.
The Grey Lodge Pub in Philadelphia celebrated Pagano's arrest Thursday with a new special, the "Swiss Cheese Pervert" -- a grilled Swiss cheese sandwich with prosciutto and caramelized onions.
