Here Are Mugshots of Alleged Swiss Cheese Pervert Chris Pagano [UPDATED]

Norristown police report that a 2009 solicitation arrest involved cheese.


UPDATE: Swiss Cheese Pervert suspect Chris Pagano has been arrested. For the complete story, go here.


When I showed up at Chris Pagano’s Norristown home on Saturday to ask him if he was the Swiss Cheese Pervert, I didn’t exactly find his denial to be very convincing. So I’m not surprised to learn that Pagano’s 2009 arrest for solicitation did, indeed, involve cheese.

Pagano, seen above in 2006 and 2009 mugshot photos, was arrested on May 6, 2009, after an incident with a woman on the street in Norristown.

From the affidavit of probable cause in that case (I changed the woman’s name):

… The Norristown Police Department received a report of attempted sexual assault. Norristown Police Officer Terrance Seligman went to the caller’s residence and met with [Ms. Doe.] [Ms. Doe] reported that she had just been approached by a male while she was walking. The male asked [Ms. Doe] to have sexual contact with him…

[Ms. Doe] told police that at approximately 0030 hours she was walking home from a store the male approached her from behind and asked her a question. The male removed a large block of cheese from his pocket and told [Ms. Doe] that he would pay her $20 to rub the swiss cheese on his penis. [Ms. Doe] became alarmed and fled on foot toward her residence. The male offered [Ms. Doe] more money as she fled the area. [Ms. Doe] described the male as white, balding and weighing over 300 pounds.

[Ms. Doe] identified Christopher Pagano as the person that asked her to place cheese on his penis.

As a result, Pagano was charged with criminal solicitation and disorderly conduct. He later pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, and the solicitation charge was dismissed.

The outcome was the same in 2006 after Pagano was charged with solicitation and disorderly conduct. The Norristown Police Department is unable to confirm that cheese was involved in the 2006 incident.

“I was working the 2006 detail as well,” says Norristown Police detective James Angelucci, who worked the 2009 case. “And I believe cheese was on the menu, but I’m not completely sure. If my memory serves me, it was Swiss.”

As for the recent reports of alleged Swiss Cheese Pervert activities in Philadelphia, including in the Mayfair neighborhood, Lieutenant Anthony McFadden of the Philadelphia Police Department’s Special Victims Unit tells me that he’s aware of the accusations against the Swiss Cheese Pervert but that he is still waiting for a complaining witness or victim to come forward and be interviewed. In other word, ladies, the police need your help. You can reach Special Victims at 215-685-3263.

A Mayfair Town Watch representative says that their organization has provided the police with the names and contact information of six alleged Swiss Cheese Pervert victims.

    I am curious to see if any of those “Internet Reputation Services” companies will be able to work miracles with getting this crap off the Internet. Methinks not.

  • Shemp Howard

  • worrierking

    Boy am I relieved. I was worried because I thought they were on to me. But I always use White American cheese in my exploits.

    I posted a Missed Connection on Craigslist in 2009 and someone emailed me a picture of his junk with cheese wrapped around it. I found the archived message and Googled the email address – the name Chris Pagano comes up. Here’s what he sent me:

    this is what make me different to the law abiding public, and has the state wanting me dead.

    My swiss cheese fetish, feared by the general public, but you tell me?

    Ok the details are as follows, it’s a fetish, particularly a food fetish, no eating is involved, you use the food to pleasure me sexually. the food is cheese, more importantly Swiss cheese. Several methods can be use to pleasure me with the Swiss cheese, the easiest is to use a bar of Swiss cheese, you would use the bar by rubbing it along my dick, the sliding action would provide the stimulation. The second method, and this method is harder, is to use slices of Swiss cheese, with this method, you would wrap one slice at a time around my penis, sounds easy, but the slices must be snug, and I like about 12 slices of cheese, or else it will fall apart. Once on and snug, you would stroke me with the cheese.

    Here is a pic to show I am serious

    Oh my god, I used to live in Chester County until 2010 and would look around at the craigslist personal ads with my husband just for a chuckle and there was often a guy who would show a picture of his penis and would ask for a woman to come and rub cheese on it (and that he preferred swiss)… I wonder if that is him. We still laugh at him now when we talk about craigslist personal ads to other people (and the shock of just what people put on there).

    • JofreyRice

      nah, probably just a coincidence.

      • cheesehead

        not sure if you’re being sarcastic or not, hard to tell online, but that is most likely the same guy. he’s messages a couple of my friends on ok cupid dating back to 2010

    • jackie

      It probally was him bc they were saying they found a couple of his personal adds that he put out on and another dating site about him offering to pay a woman money to rub swiss cheese on his penis. He said he doesnt have the looks and he is fat but money is one thing he has. Hes a freak
