The "Piggyback Bandit", one of the most polite and creepy pedophiles New Jersey has ever known, has been arrested again for assaulting a teen.
The man known as the "Piggyback Bandit" for showing up to high school sporting events seeking piggyback rides from teen athletes is accused of assaulting a teenage boy Friday at an airport in Newark, New Jersey.
Port Authority police identified Sherwin Shayegan, 34, as the man behind the assault which took place at Newark Liberty International Airport around 3:10 p.m. Friday. Police say Shayegan touched a 14-year-old boy at a luggage carousel and gave him a note that said, "This is money for letting me give you a massage. Thank you."
Authorities also described the note as containing "alarming content" but didn't provide more details than that. Investigators tracked down Shayegan who is from Bothell, Washington and discovered several "disturbing notes" and money in envelopes with names of U.S. airports written on them.
Shayegan became known as the "Piggyback Bandit" because of his habit of seeking piggyback rides from teen athletes, according to a Newsweek report. He would also attempt to pay for piggybacks or jump onto the backs of unsuspecting teens despite weighing 240 pounds.
