Fullerton Professor Suspected of Exposing Himself to Pedestrians

A former Orange County professor is facing charges after police identified him as the alleged perpetrator of two separate incidents last year when women reported to authorities that a man in his vehicle had called them over and pulled down his pants.

Late in the afternoon on September 15, 2017, a 34-year-old woman was strolling down the street in Cerritos when a man driving a white SUV stopped in front of her and beckoned her for directions. As she advanced toward the vehicle she saw that the man had his penis out of his pants. She quickly walked off and called the police to report the incident.

Shortly after the first occurrence, a 19-year-old woman was walking down the street in Artesia when a man driving an SUV called her over to his vehicle. When the driver became visible to the woman she saw that he was in the act of masturbating, and she called the Lakewood Sheriff’s Station to alert them of what she had witnessed.

Authorities purported that 46-year-old Dong-Hyun Huh of Norwalk was the suspected person responsible for the incidents that the women had reported.

Huh, a former anthropology professor at Grace Mission University in Fullerton, was taken into custody by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies on March 6 and charged with two misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure. He was released from custody the following morning after posting bond, and his arraignment is scheduled for May 1.

If Huh is found guilty of the charges he could face a jail sentence of up to 24 months, and he would be required to register as a sex offender.
