Cameron Shenk, 26, presents what can only be described as a tough defense case. A woman was in a bathroom stall in Terminal C of the Logan Airport in Boston when Shenk reportedly fell through the ceiling naked. It went from bad to worse from that point on.
Shenk allegedly was bleeding from cuts to his head and body when he ran from the bathroom naked and assaulted and seriously injured an 84-year-old man. He then allegedly resisted arrest and injured a police officer.
The current list of charges is pretty daunting: attempted murder, mayhem, assault and battery on a person over 60, assault and battery on a police officer, lewd and lascivious act, and malicious destruction of property over $250. It is clear that the police want Shenk in jail for a very very long time though the attempted murder charge is not fully explained in most articles. However, there is an account that he bite the old man on the ear and tried to strangle him with his cane.
Shenk is a student at Harvard University Extension School, which is independent of Harvard College.
