Naked suspect charged with assault at airport

BOSTON (AP) – State police say a man stripped inside a women’s bathroom at Boston’s Logan Airport, climbed into a dropped ceiling, crashed through it and landed on the floor, then assaulted an elderly man while he was still naked and bleeding.

A motive for the bizarre behavior that occurred Saturday in Terminal C isn’t known.

Twenty-six-year-old Cameron Shenk was arrested on charges including attempted murder, mayhem, assault and battery on a person over 60 and committing a lewd and lascivious act.

Police say the 84-year-old victim suffered serious injuries in the attack. They say Shenk struggled with troopers who arrested him, with one trooper suffering a minor injury.

Shenk was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for treatment. Police say he will be booked upon release and arraigned in East Boston District Court.

A telephone listing for Shenk couldn’t be located.
