Man Accused of Exposing Himself Near Children's Center at Orange Coast College

He is not a student at OCC.

A 23-year-old San Bernardino man was behind bars Thursday on suspicion of exposing himself on the Orange Coast College campus near the children's center.

Sungyoun Jung was booked on suspicion indecent exposure, child annoyance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, with bail set at $52,500, according to Costa Mesa police spokeswoman Roxi Fyad.

Campus security personnel responded about 9:05 a.m. Wednesday to a report of a suspicious man near the campus E Lot, she said, and found the suspect hiding in bushes and peering over a wall of the children's center while allegedly exposing himself.

As security guards tried to subdue the suspect, he became combative, according to police, who were summoned to the scene to arrest him. The college's Early Childhood Lab School and the OCC Children's Center were placed on a brief lockdown during the incident, Fyad said.

Jung is not a student at OCC, she said.

Jung is due in court Friday on a prior charge of misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia stemming from an April 19 arrest, according to court records.
