A man who was tackled and beaten by a group of Roman Catholic schoolgirls after he flashed them outside their high school was sentenced Wednesday to 10 months to two years in prison.
Rudy Susando, 25, also was sentenced to five years probation after his release, Assistant District Attorney Noel Ann DeSantis said. Susando, a native of Indonesia, also might face deportation after his sentence is served, DeSantis said.
Susando was arrested Oct. 30 when more than a dozen girls from St. Maria Goretti High School for Girls, with the help of a bystander, chased him and wrestled him to the ground and held him for police. When he resisted, the girls kicked him repeatedly. He was treated for minor injuries at a hospital.
The South Philadelphia schoolgirls said the man had been exposing himself outside the school for about a month and a half, typically jumping out from behind a van, then running away, police said.
Susando was convicted in February of 13 counts each of indecent exposure, open lewdness, corrupting minors and stalking.
Public defender David Cross asked to delay the sentencing, saying he plans to appeal.
