According to the arrest report obtained by NBC, Sherman “repeated” how he loved the name of the character the woman was dressed as “as he placed his right arm around the victim's shoulders”.

“I love … This is my favourite,” he said.

The incident left her in tears, according to an affidavit.

The Disney photographer provided the pictures to investigators who used them to identify Sherman.

He was booked on battery charges.
