Man who fell from airport ceiling naked held without bail

BOSTON - A Boston man who police say fell naked through the ceiling of a women's bathroom at Boston's airport and then assaulted an elderly man has been ordered held without bail pending a hearing next week.

Cameron Shenk was arraigned Wednesday on charges that include attempted murder, assault and battery on a person over 60, and lewd and lascivious conduct.

Police say the 26-year-old Shenk fell through the ceiling at about noon Saturday. He had allegedly sneaked into the bathroom, undressed inside a stall and climbed into the ceiling crawl space. Police say he then fled the bathroom and assaulted an 84-year-old man.

Shenk's lawyer said he is a student studying economics at Harvard Extension School and has no history of mental illness.

A hearing to determine whether he is dangerous to the public is scheduled Monday.
