Man arrested in Conway toe-sucking appeals

— 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.

Wow, back in the day that was called flirting. Now it's a crime? Well I guess everything is these days. And we wonder why our jails and prisons are overcrowded. If you didn't like his comments just walk away and call him a creep or just say no thanks. Soon it will be harrasment to ask a women out to dinner. She will claim that she knew what you meant by that question. Get over it people and live a little.

i lay hardwood: this is the same guy who a few years ago went around asking women if he could suck their toes. When they turned him down, he was known to threaten a couple of them. He threatened to cut their feet off and suck their toes while they bled to death. Fast forward a couple of years and two women who recently were confronted by this guy was able to pick him out from photos. SAME GUY. So... if your mother, wife, daughter or sister was one of the women who was threatened by this guy, would you still feel people need to get over it and live a little?

My mother or sister would tell him to piss off. It's not like he cornered them in a dark alley. They were in a business during daylight hours. Last month a woman told me to kiss her butt, should I have called the cops and had her arrested for harrassing me? Do you think she would have been arrested or still in jail on bond? GET over it and live a little!

Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can suck the toes of old ladies at will. There is a pestilence upon this land, nothing is sacred. Shall the toes of the good people of Conway ever be safe in these dark times?
