A 23-year-old San Bernardino man accused of exposing himself on the Orange Coast College campus near the children’s center was charged with three misdemeanors Friday.
Sungyoun Jung pleaded not guilty Friday to single misdemeanor counts each of lewd conduct in a public place, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. At his arraignment in the jail courtroom in Santa Ana, he was scheduled to next appear in court on June 28 in the West Justice Center in Westminster.
Campus security personnel responded at 9:05 a.m. Wednesday to a report of a suspicious man near the campus E Lot, according to Costa Mesa Police spokeswoman Roxi Fyad, 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.
In April, Jung was charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
