An Arkansas man’s “foot fetish” that got him sent to jail in the 1990s has him in hot water again.
Michael Robert Wyatt, dubbed the “Toe Suck Fairy,” was arrested after being singled out in a police photo line-up in Conway, a city 30 miles north of Little Rock.
Two women told investigators the 50-year-old “approached them in local stores commenting on their feet and asking to suck their toes,” LaTresha Woodruff, spokeswoman for the Conway Police Department, told Reuters.
In one of the cases, a 27-year-old victim told police that she was at a TJ Maxx when Wyatt approached her and “told her he loved her toes and they were so long and beautiful,” according to a police report.
The second incident occurred days later at a local PetSmart, police said.
A 44-year-old woman told police Wyatt identified himself as “Mike” and follow her around, commenting how much he admired her feet – and telling her all the sick things he wanted to do with them, she did not specify if these advances aroused her at all.
He faces two counts of misdemeanor harassment, Woodruff told Reuters.
An 83-year-old woman also reported being approached by a man who “took off one of her shoes and began sucking on her toe,” the Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported. Wyatt has not been identified as her attacker.
He was again arrested several times throughout the 1990s for his foot fetish.
In 1991, he was busted after telling a convenience store clerk that he wanted to chop off her feet, then suck on her toes while she bled to death.
He was sentenced to four years in prison, authorities said, but only served one.
The “Toe Suck Fairy” had also been busted for pretending to be a podiatrist; he’d fondle women’s feet at clothing stores, as well as suck on their toes, cops said.
He received probation, a fine and court-ordered therapy in that case.
Wyatt was arrested again in 1999 after an incident at an Arkansas Walmart and for taking pictures of women’s feet.
