Westside student charged with sexual battery

Student arrested for sexual battery


A Westside High School student was arrested Monday and charged with sexual battery for pulling down the shirt of a female student and exposing her breasts during a physical education class.

According to a Richmond County Board of Education incident report, the girl was walking around the gym doing laps when she stopped to talk to a group of students on Friday.

Austin Robertson, 18, then asked if anyone wanted “to see a peep show,” according to the report. He pulled the top of her shirt down, along with her bra, exposing her breasts to other students.

Robertson is suspended pending a tribunal hearing with the school system. He was arrested Monday evening at the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.
