Alleged “‘Swiss Cheese Pervert’” and Norristown resident Chris Pagano posted bail on Friday after being arrested Thursday afternoon by Philadelphia police at his home; he now faces charges for three separate alleged incidents in Philadelphia spanning 2013 to 2014.
Pagano was arrested after being accused of propositioning women around Philadelphia with swiss cheese. He posted 10 percent of a $30,000 bail early on Friday, according to NBC10.
According to court documents online, Pagano has three cases open in the Philadelphia courts, and is charged for three alleged incidents, one on Oct.14, 2014, and two on Jan. 5, 2014.

Alleged “‘Swiss Cheese Pervert’” and Norristown resident Chris Pagano was arrested Thursday afternoon by Philadelphia police at his home and now faces charges for three separate alleged incidents in Philadelphia.
Pagano is alleged to have had interactions with three women on three separate occasions in Philadelphia, the first being Oct. 14, 2013 and the last being Jan. 5, 2014, with the second incident allegedly taking place between those two dates, a representative from the Philadelphia police Special Victims Unit (SVU) told Patch on Thursday evening.
It is alleged that Pagano, 41, drove up to the women and asked if they would like to receive payment for watching him place swiss cheese on his genitals.
Pagano faces one charge for each of the three incidents, totaling two counts of indecent exposure and one count of harassment.
As of Thursday evening, Pagano was still in police custody.
From here, he will have his preliminary arraignment and his bail will be set, said the SVU representative.
