Anthony Parri, 49, was arraigned on two felony sex abuse and endangering the welfare of a child charges. According to court documents obtained by WHAM-TV, Parri removed a child's shoe, fondled her foot and pressed it up against his nose and mouth.
Parri pleaded not guilty and claims the accusations are part of a conspiracy.
"I'm being set up by the President Barack Obama and the city and federal government," he said after the arraignment. "My family was killed here. My uncle was killed here. This is a set up... they had women following me in Wegmans."
Police are currently investigating five similar cases that occurred in two other nearby cities, Pittsford and Brighton, to see if Parri may be connected, the New York Daily News reported. In those incidents a man approached young girls, ages 5 to 10, and licked their feet.
