School officials say suspected 'flasher' has no connection to RMA

By Staff
PEACHTREE CITY - Officials at Riverside Military Academy in Gainesville said Wednesday they do not believe a man who has been "flashing" female shoppers in Peachtree City has any connection to the school.<br /> <br /> The suspect, according to a report on Fox 5 News, exposed himself to a woman in the parking lot of a Kroger grocery store. He was wearing a t-shirt with the Riverside logo on it. <br /> <br /> School officials issued a statement, saying they had reviewed surveillance photos from the Kroger store at the Kedron Village Shopping Center. The statement said they did not recognize the suspect.<br /> <br /> "We do not believe he has any connection to the Academy," read the statement. <br /> <br /> "We have also called investigators and offered assistance. The T-shirt in the video has not been issued on our campus in over 4 years. Parents often donate old uniforms to charity after cadets graduate. <br /> <br /> "This sort of behavior is the opposite of what Riverside stands for. We have promoted courtesy, character, and good citizenship for 107 years."<br /> <br /> Peachtree City officers said the flasher is a young black male. The incident in question occurred in broad daylight, according to investigators. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
