A Boston man was arrested on Saturday at Logan International Airport, after he fell through the ceiling of a women’s bathroom and assaulted an elderly man.
According to the Boston Herald, the incident occurred around 12 p.m., when a woman using the restroom in Terminal C reported that a naked man had fallen through the ceiling into the stall area, before running out of the bathroom.
David Procopio, a spokesperson for the state police, said that after plunging through the ceiling, the suspect then fled the restroom and turned his aggression on an elderly man who “happened to be passing by at the time.”
The suspect, Cameron Shenk, who was “naked and bleeding” after his bathroom exit, had allegedly bitten the elderly man’s ear, stole his cane, and started choking him with it, before troopers arrested him. Procopio added that a trooper had also suffered a minor hand injury while placing Shenk under arrest.
The 84-year-old unidentified man was taken to a Boston area hospital, where he was treated for his injuries. Shenk, 26, was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for observation.
Police investigation indicated that Shenk had snuck into the female restroom minutes before noon, then took his clothes off in one of the stalls, and climbed into the crawl space above the bathroom, before he crashed through the ceiling.
The suspect, who’s reportedly a Boston resident, faces charges of attempted murder, mayhem, assault and battery on a person over 60, assault and battery on a police officer, lewd and lascivious act, and malicious destruction of property over $250.
A seemingly busy day at Logan International, about 30 minutes before the nude man fell through the ceiling, troopers responded to reports of a young female passenger screaming from inside a BMW that had pulled up at terminal A.
According to the Boston Globe, troopers followed the car into Terminal B at the United Airlines entrance, where a cruiser pulled in front of the car, and allowed the woman to leave the vehicle.
The victim, who had apparently kicked out one of the car’s windows in distress, was later identified as a 21-year-old Woburn resident. She stated that the driver of the vehicle had punched her in the face after she refused to give him money, and would not let her out of the car.
The driver, 52-year-old Anton Hilton of Roxbury, was arrested and charged with assault and battery and kidnapping.
An investigation is ongoing in both cases.
