CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas man who was once convicted of threatening to cut off a woman's feet and suck her toes while she bled to death was back in jail Monday after two women told police he wanted to touch their toes as well.
Michael Robert Wyatt was arrested in Conway, about 30 miles north of Little Rock, on misdemeanor harassment charges. Two women who had called police earlier this month picked his photo from a lineup, said Conway Police spokeswoman LaTresha Woodruff.
According to police reports, one woman said the man stared at her while she was shopping at a department store, then approached her and "told her he loved her toes and they were so long and beautiful." He told her he had a "foot fetish" and wanted to suck on her toes, the police report said.
Two days later, another woman called police to say she was approached at a pet supply store by a man who began commenting on her feet, police said. The man introduced himself to the woman as Mike, the report said.
Police say a third woman also reported a similar crime, but did not connect Wyatt to it.
"She was also shown a photo line up with Mr. Wyatt's picture in it. But she did not identify him as the person who approached and ended up sucking on her toe," said Conway spokesperson Latresha Woodruff.
Police say the third woman is 83 years old. Investigators tell us her age does not affect her memory.
"She is adamant, this is not the person who approached her while she was sitting outside,"said Woodruff.
Wyatt, 50, of nearby Vilonia, Ark., was convicted of felony terroristic threatening in 1992 and served more than a year in state prison, said Dina Tyler, spokeswoman for the Arkansas Department of Correction.
In that case, Wyatt told a woman in Faulkner County that he would cut off her feet and suck her toes while she bled to death.
He was being held Monday in Faulkner County jail on $1,290 bond. A phone message left at his address was not returned.
