Shayegan is one frickin' bizarre individual.
Sherwin Shayegan is a serial piggybacker known as the Piggyback Bandit. And he has been spotted in Minnesota.

Shayegan, 28, likes to show up at high school sporting events and jump on the players' backs. He is not shy about this -- his Facebook page asks you to "Give me a piggyback ride!" (It also says Sherwin wants to meet "good looking boys. Preferably at libraries when no one else is around.")

In other words, he is one of the creepiest mofos you will ever meet. So creepy that mere reports of his presence in the state were enough for the Minnesota State High School League to ban him from attending high school sporting events.

As Forbes puts it, "The Seattle native has cut a piggybacking swath across the Pacific Northwest." He's been banned from high school games in Washington, Montana, North Dakota, and now Minnesota. On February 1, he plead guilty to two counts of misdemeanor assault for piggybacking two players during a high school soccer tournament last October.

He was in North Dakota earlier this week. Jim Haussler, director of Bismarck public school activities, described Shayegan's behavior to KXNews thusly:
He was at three events girls and boys games at Century against St. Mary's high school, he was also at the Century Fargo South hockey game. And the behavior that was reported to us was that there were a number attempts to get piggyback rides and he was successful at a couple of them. Tried to make his way to locker rooms and was stopped.
Then on Wednesday he was spotted in Moorhead, pouring water for the players during the St. Olaf-Concordia basketball game. A St. Olaf coached asked him to leave the area because he was creeping everyone out. Shayegan, atypically, obliged.

He continues traveling east, inexorably. The Star Tribune reports Shayegan was seen in St. Cloud on Thursday and Minneapolis today, prompting the high school league to preemptively ban him from high school events. Perhaps by the time you read this he'll be in St. Paul.

So, high school athletes -- especially those of you with games tonight -- beware. Because the Piggyback Bandit is out there, and you never know whose back he'll jump on next.

People should not be kicking him out of places and they should be talking to him to try to help him because he may have been abused as a child.  He probably does not have the mental brain of a full-grown adult yet.


I feel sorry for him and if any more cops arrest him, I hope that the cops get hurt in return because that is harming a vulnerable adult.

Its only a matter of time before this freak takes it a step further and tries to snatch a kid somewhere. Skip jail...he needs to be cained or whipped like they do in Singapore.

I would like City Pages to know I find this author to be horrific.  Is there no editorial oversight on this blog?  While i am not opposed to the interjection of humor or wit into an article, this author in particular writes his articles like they are posts to his own personal blog.  I would appreciate more reporting of the facts and perhaps even the point of view or comments of community members or the relevant people in the aritcle, but i could care less about his point of view and find his remarks in all his articles to be juvenile and sometimes even insulting.  I know the city pages isnt the washington post, but this is a bit rediculous.

Not to be picky, but should it not be written that he pled guilty, or he pleaded guilty.  Personally I prefer he pled guilty,kind of rolls off your tongue, like a french whore.

But he is a victim of Racism....if White people would have given him a chance....he could have became a productive member of society.....you people are racist.

Why are you so sure he's a victim of racism? I can assure you there are plenty of white people who "gave him a chance"...more than one chance. I am one of them and I know several others. The guy is a freak. He is into drugs, he threatened to steal my child and take her out of state, and even when WE moved, he managed to hunt us down and stalk us after he got out of jail. He may be a little slow mentally, but most of it is a game. The race card is just another way for you to get on your soapbox and rant to the world about how horrible white people are. I mean seriously, I'm sure you haven't followed his life personally to be able to say he's a victim of racism. In fact, it seems if anyone here's racist, it's you.

I don't understand how he has not gotten his a** beat so far. Why wouldn't a group of targeted athletes just beat the s*** out of him?

I think City Pages should hook up Sherwin with Charger (from your fetish cover story this week).  Sounds like a match made in heaven.
