WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- The 27-year-old Scarsdale man arrested in connection with last February's disrobing at Maria Regina High School is due to return to Town of Greenburgh Court on Thursday, Feb. 2, according to a spokesman for the Westchester County District Attorney's Office..

The suspect, Edward Foley of Scarsdale, entered the private school located at 500 West Hartsdale Ave. in Hartsdale about 5 p.m. on Feb. 25, 2016, as reported here by Daily Voice.

Foley entered the building through the main entrance at a time when people were going in and out of our school for various after-school activities, according to Nicole Mitrione, Maria Regina's dean of students.

Robert Wolf, a spokesman for the county District Attorney's Office, said that Foley was charged with two counts of acting in a manner injurious to a child -- class "A" misdemeanors -- and one count of third-degree criminal trespass, a class "B" misdemeanor.

The male reportedly entered the men’s bathroom next to the main lobby and disrobed. He then held the bathroom door open and intentionally allowed himself to be observed standing just inside the doorway, according to Greenburgh police. The male then put his clothes back on and fled the school, said police, who released security camera images of the suspect, police said last year.

An investigation conducted by the Greenburgh Police Department’s Special Victim’s Unit -- with the assistance of Westchester County Probation and the Westchester County District Attorney's Office-- resulted in the arrest of Foley, of Evandale Road in Scarsdale, according to Greenburgh police.

Foley was released on $5,000 bail.
