Police are hoping to catch a bizarre flasher who’s been haunting Frankford Avenue at night, asking women to perform sexual acts on him with a slice of Swiss.
But although the “Mayfair Swiss Cheese Pervert” has become something of an Internet sensation, so far, nobody has actually reported him to the cops.
And that’s got to change, said Lt. Anthony McFadden of the Special Victims Unit, so police can catch him and “get him the help he needs.”
SVU detectives first got word through social media sites that there was a guy driving around Mayfair, exposing himself and soliciting women to join a threesome that involved cheese.
“But we don’t have a victim or a complainant yet on paper,” McFadden said Monday morning. “It’s all third-party right now. … It’s all over the Internet … it’s a viral windstorm.”
People might think this man’s perversion is amusing, but there’s a potential for danger, the lieutenant said.
This is more than just indecent exposure, he said.
“Once he gets someone’s attention,” McFadden said, “he follows them.”
“This guy has some major issues,” McFadden said. “This has the potential of going to the next step … He might become more physical or threatening.”
The description found on the Mayfair Town Watch site is that of a portly, balding white man who drives a black sedan, McFadden said.
Anyone who has seen this man approach anyone or has been approached should call McFadden at 215-685-3251.
“We need people to come in and help us get this guy off the streets,” the lieutenant said.
McFadden said SVU detectives have come across different kinds of fetishes, but, “This will be the first time for all of us that somebody used Swiss cheese.” ••
