CMPD Just Issued An Arrest Warrant For A Man Who Gives Unsolicited Back Rubs


CMPD has just issued a warrant for Sherwin Shayegan, aka the “Piggyback Bandit,” after a Florida man reported a shoulder rubbing incident while traveling at the Charlotte Douglas Airport.

After Shayegan made national headlines last week for rubbing the shoulders of a minor, the Charlotte Douglas passenger recognized him and called CMPD to report his account when he had his shoulders uncomfortably rubbed last year.

Shayegan made headlines last Friday when he was arrested at the Newark Liberty International Airport for massaging the back of a teenage boy and then handing the boy an envelope containing cash and an inappropriate note.

According to numerous news reports, the man is also infamous for attending high school athletic events and asking for piggyback rides from the players. He’s now banned from sporting events at high schools in five states.

If you have any additional information about Shayegan, or if you’ve seen, please call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
