PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A man accused of using Swiss cheese to sexually proposition unsuspecting women in Philadelphia has pleaded guilty and been sentenced to probation.

Christopher Pagano pleaded guilty Thursday to indecent exposure and harassment.

In addition to eight months of probation, he also must undergo sex offender counseling.

The 42-year-old Norristown man was arrested in January after three women reported that a man had driven up to them and offered them money to put cheese on his genitals and perform a lewd act. A fourth victim later came forward.

The story went viral after a Philadelphia neighborhood watch group posted a blurry cellphone picture on its Facebook page of a half-naked man in his car holding up what appears to be cheese.

The group dubbed him the “Swiss Cheese Pervert.”
