Naked man attacks octogenarian at airport in Boston

AP, BOSTON

A naked man fell through the ceiling of a women’s bathroom at Logan International Airport, then ran out of the restroom and viciously assaulted an elderly man while he was still in the buff and bleeding, before being arrested, state police said.

Cameron Shenk, 26, of Boston, was charged with attempted murder, mayhem, assault and battery on a person over 60, assault and battery on a police officer, lewd and lascivious conduct and malicious destruction to property.

The bizarre behavior began shortly before noon on Saturday when a woman using a restroom located before the security checkpoint in Terminal C reported that a naked man had fallen through the ceiling and landed in the stall area, state police spokesman David Procopio said.

The man had apparently sneaked into the bathroom, undressed inside one of the stalls and climbed into the crawl space above the restroom before falling through the ceiling, Procopio said.

The man, later identified as Shenk, then fled the bathroom and assaulted an 84-year-old man he encountered, biting the man’s ear and attempting to choke him with his own cane, Procopio said.

The reason for the attack was unknown.

Shenk scuffled with responding troopers who arrested him, leaving one trooper with a minor hand injury, Procopio said.

The 84-year-old man was taken to a hospital to have his injured ear treated.
