While out on bond for allegedly masturbating in front of multiple women on and near the Kennesaw State University campus, an Acworth man has been charged with flashing teenage girls outside his home.

Gary Jia Lee was arrested on the three new child molestation charges June 6, the same day the incident allegedly happened, Cobb County jail records show. His attorney maintains that Lee is innocent of both sets of charges.

A Cobb police warrant says that Lee walked out onto the front porch of his Caboose Lane home with his boxers around his knees and wearing nothing else.

He “asked the (girls) if (they) wanted to get to know him while walking towards them,” according to the warrant.

The girls were 13 and 14.

In January, Lee was booked on public indecency charges after months of investigating four alleged incidents of a man flashing and masturbating in front of women on and around KSU late last year.

He was a student living off campus when he was arrested, the school confirmed at the time.

The first incident detailed by police was Aug. 6. A woman driving by on a golf cart saw Lee on his apartment balcony at the time “wearing only a sock over his penis while gyrating his hips with his arms in the air,” a warrant said.

The last of those alleged incidents was Nov. 30 when police say Lee stopped his car on Idlewood Avenue at the crosswalk between the KSU Place Clubhouse and Building D and waved a woman over to his vehicle.

Once she got there, police say he pulled out his genitals and started masturbating while smiling at her.

All four victims identified Lee from a photo line-up, according to a warrant.

He was given a bail of $5,000 for those misdemeanor charges and bonded out the day he was arrested, according to a Cobb County Sheriff’s Office spokesman.

Lee’s attorney Christopher B. Cahill said Thursday he had not “seen evidence to prove him guilty yet” in regards to the recent accusations.

Cahill said it wasn’t immediately clear how this case will affect the previous one.

“We’re looking forward to investigating it,” he said of the new charges.

Since his arrest nearly a week ago, Lee has remained in Cobb County jail on his felony charges — without bond.
