School employee accused of indecent exposure reassigned
CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (WSVN) -- A South Florida school employee accused of indecent exposure has been reassigned while police investigate allegations of some indecent behavior.
According to police, Mark Lynn is quite the exhibitionist. He came out of his home completely nude Sunday night. The girl who was standing across the street saw him and he stood there for about 20 minutes.
When her family came out, they said he continued to poke his head in and out of the house, still completely nude.
"It's just creepy," said a parent. "I'm scared for the kids."
The neighborhood has been left on edge after, police said, Lynn exposed himself to a 12-year-old girl. "I was very scared," said the girl. "It was very weird, not normal in a neighborhood full of kids."
The 55-year-old walked out of his town house completely naked and stood under his porch light.
"I looked at the light and saw a naked man there," said the girl. "I had never seen him before, and I went inside immediately, and I told my parents. They came outside to make sure I actually saw a naked man, and he was there."
Lynn, a head janitor at Country Hills Elementary School has been employed by Broward County Public School District for more than 15 years. "He shouldn't be working with kids," said another parent.
"It's an item that's under investigation right now. I certainly think the district is taking appropriate action," said Superintendent Robert Runcie.
"He obviously needs help," said a concerned parent. "I think he should take some time off."
He's already been reassigned, but the parents of children who live near him said they are concerned. "Now it makes sense," said Binyamen Edell. "The door is always open, and it's always very weird."
"It's a wild world today," said John Peterson, who also lives nearby. "He's probably sick or something."
Police said they have responded to calls to Lynn's home before on three separate occasions. All three times he had exposed himself to juveniles, but this was the first time he was arrested.
Meanwhile, the school board said it will have to wait until the investigation is complete to decide whether or not Lynn will keep his job.
