Dong-hyun Huh, a professor of theology at Grace Mission University in Fullerton, California, was arrested on Tuesday for lewd exposure.
According to police statements, Huh called women over to his car and flashed his genitals at them on two separate occasions. The first incident occurred around 4 PM on September 15th of 2017. A few minutes later, he allegedly masturbated in front of a 19-year-old woman.
Both women called authorities.
According to California’s ABC 7, Huh was taken into custody and released on $30,000 bail. A spokesperson from the University said that they are taking the charges seriously and want to protect their students, but note that the incidents are only considered allegations at this point.
University officials planned to put Huh on unpaid administrative leave, but he resigned instead.
