LITTLE ROCK A 50-year-old Vilonia man convicted previously of making threats about sucking women's toes has been arrested in Conway on similar accusations.
Michael Wyatt, 50, is facing two charges of misdemeanor harassment, according to a statement from the Conway Police Department. He was taken into custody around 11:30 a.m. Monday, police said.
Two women reportedly picked Wyatt out of a photo lineup as the man who approached them in recent weeks in Conway stores and made comments about sucking their toes.
A third woman reported to police that a man approached her outside her apartment, said he liked her feet and then began sucking on her toes. But that woman did not identify Wyatt as the culprit and he was not charged in that incident, police spokesman Latresha Woodruff said.
Wyatt has convictions from the early 1990s in Little Rock, Cabot and Conway - including a felony for which he served time in prison - involving comments he made about sucking women's toes or cutting off their feet, according to stories published in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in 1999.
Newspaper accounts show Wyatt was convicted in 1991 in Faulkner County of threatening to cut off a woman's feet and suck her toes while she bled to death.
Wyatt was being held Monday afternoon in the Faulkner County Jail in lieu of a $1,290 bond.
