ABC 27 reports below...

Police said he was having sexual relationships with female students while claiming to be an 18-year-old senior at the school.
According to police, Samarin had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student in 2014 while he was 22-years-old.
Investigators said Samarin was also a student at Harrisburg University.

Samarin who went by the name of “Asher Potts”  enrolled in Harrisburg High School as a freshman in 2012 and was a member of the National Honor Society and the school's ROTC and Naval Sea Cadet programs. He was to graduate in June.
Police were alerted to Samarin by a tipster in December who alleged Samarin was an adult living illegally in the U.S. and was having sexual relationships with female students. He was then arrested and charged with false identification. He was previously facing identity theft and tampering with public records charges.
Investigators said Samarin arrived in the U.S. on a 3-month exchange visitor visa and worked for a local company during that time.
Investigators said he used falsified documents to enroll at John Harris High School, including a Social Security card that he received after going to several Social Security Administration offices. The investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are expected, police said.
