While the cheese may stand alone, the "Swiss Cheese Pervert's" alleged victims are standing together.

After Christopher Pagano, 41, made headlines in January for driving around Mayfair and exposing his penis to three women while he asked them to pleasure him with Swiss cheese, a fourth victim came forward to police on her own accord, said the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office.

Already charged with three counts each of stalking, indecent exposure, harassment and open lewdness for his previous three victims, Pagano was recently charged with all those counts again for the fourth victim, said the District Attorney's Office. In total, Pagano is facing 20 counts, said Tasha Jamerson, spokeswoman for the District Attorney's Office.

Prosecutors did not release the details of the fourth incident, except to say Pagano's "harassment included using processed cheese when he approached the victims." Jamerson said the latest incident happened in January. That means Pagano either had to do it in the 10 days before his fetish hit the news, or he continued to conduct these lewd acts against women during the week-long manhunt for his arrest.

Pagano turned himself in on the latest charges and remains free on 10 percent of $90,000 bail.

His next court date is slated for April's Fools Day. Seriously.
