(Boiling Springs) -- Charges are pending against a 20-year-old man who police say streaked across a football field and exposed himself during a suburban Harrisburg high school graduation.

The incident occurred Friday at Boiling Springs High School.

Police say a man wearing only a pair of underwear and a mask ran across the field and exposed his buttocks during the graduation ceremony.

South Middleton Superintendent Al Moyer said the streaking occurred during a speech from the school's valedictorian.

Witnesses said Boiling Springs resident Connor Murphy was the culprit.

Moyer says Murphy, a recent graduate of the school, was easily identified by staff and audience members.

Moyer says the district will press charges and prosecute Murphy to the full extent of the law to discourage similar behavior in the future.
