On Monday, the mother of a girl who allegedly saw Lynn walking around naked was upset that he was back home. Coral Springs Police Lt. Joe McHugh and parents Richard Saxton and Laurie Ferrenti also discussed the case.
The mother of a girl who allegedly saw a Broward County public school maintenance employee walking around naked was upset Monday that he was back home.
The mother, who didn't want to be identified, said she had been looking out her window all day since Mark Lynn had been released.
"I've been looking out my window all day since he's been released. So it's a little scary," she said. "I'd like him removed from the neighborhood."
Mark Lynn, 55, a Broward County public school employee was arrested Saturday night for allegedly walking in and out of his house in the buff. His young neighbor was chasing her cat when she apparently came across the disturbing sight and called her parents, authorities said.
"The individual did make eye contact with the family and did nothing to conceal himself," said Lt. Joe McHugh with the Coral Springs police.
Lynn, a maintenance worker at Country Hills Elementary, didn't come to the door Monday, but according to police he's been spotted outside of his house naked before. It wasn't immediately known if he had an attorney.
"Over the last two years we were called out twice, once he was walking to the rear naked by a canal bank. We never made contact with him at that point," said McHugh
The second time a 15-year-old neighbor decided not to press charges. He wasn't arrested so police didn't discover he worked for the school.
"Obviously if we had been told by him that he was a school employee we would have immediately taken action with the school board," McHugh said.
On Monday, the school board told NBC 6 that Lynn was not allowed to return to the school. He's been employed with them since 1996 and he will be reassigned to another location with no student contact.
Richard Saxton, a parent, said he was happy Lynn was removed from the school. Still, parents at the school say they are still shocked that Lynn worked at a school so long.
"Absolutely scary cause they have free reign of the school and the kids. Scary," said Laurie Ferrenti.
