Man arrested for approaching young girls in libraries and licking their feet claims he is being set up by Obama

Police in Rochester, New York, have arrested  a man in connection with a series of incidents involving children at local  libraries.

Police say 49-year-old Anthony Parri is a  serial offender who has a fetish for fondling, smelling and licking children’s  feet.

Parri denies the charges, claiming instead  that he is the victim of a conspiracy that involves state and federal  governments, and President Barack Obama.

An employee at Penfield Library in Rochester  claims to have seen Parri committing one of the offences on Tuesday – telling  police that he approached a six-year-old girl, first removing her shoe and then  fondling her foot and pressing it up against his nose and mouth.

The female employee told other staff and the  police were called. Parri was arrested outside the library.

Investigators did not know about the second  incident, which also involved a young girl at the library, until a concerned  parent contacted them and said that her daughter had talked about the incident  on the way home in the car.

Parri has been charged with two separate  counts of sex abuse and endangering the welfare of a child, and police are now  investigating whether he was involved in five similar reported incidents in  nearby Brighton and Pittsford.

In each of the five incidents, a man  approached girls between the ages of five and ten and licked their  feet.

Parri claimed he was innocent of all charges  as he arrived and left Penfield Justice Courts on Tuesday.

In a rambling message to waiting reporters,  Parri called on all women and children of Rochester to come forward, claiming he  had been set up and his case was a federal matter.

Leaving the court, Parri went further,  alleging: ‘I am being set up by the president, Barack Obama, and city and  federal governments.’

According to ABC -13, police have said Parri is  not the same man seen in a previously released surveillance photo in connection  with the incidents. Investigators identified that man and have cleared him of  any wrongdoing
