BOSTON (AP) — A 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 agreed to get a mental health evaluation.

Cameron Shenk is charged with attempted murder, assault and lewd and lascivious conduct in the Nov. 22 incident at Logan International Airport.

A dangerousness hearing scheduled for Monday was canceled after Shenk agreed to undergo a mental health evaluation.

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

Shenk's lawyer said last week that his client is a student studying economics at Harvard Extension School and has no history of mental illness.
