A man who captured local headlines in Philadelphia by allegedly approaching women and asking them to perform sex acts on him with swiss cheese was arrested Thursday.

Philadelphia police arrested Chris Pagano in his Norristown, Pa., home after a blurry photo of a half-naked man holding a packet of swiss cheese surfaced on a local town watch Facebook page, the Associated Press reports. Dubbed the “Swiss Cheese Pervert,” the culprit’s exploits quickly went viral in the Philadelphia area.

The “Swiss Cheese Pervert” became famous in the area after he allegedly drove up to multiple women on the street and offered to pay them to put swiss cheese on his penis or to watch him masturbate with the sandwich ingredient, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

One victim who managed to snap a picture of the perv said he was very explicit about his request. “He told me he liked to put Swiss cheese on his private area,” she told NBC Philadelphia.

Pagano will likely face charges of indecent exposure, stalking and harassment. He was in custody late Thursday and it wasn’t yet clear if he had an attorney, the AP reports.
