Ulsan police have arrested a 50-year-old man accused of exposing himself frequently around a girl’s high school.
A 33-year-old female police officer surnamed Park helped bring down the suspect on April 17th by posing as a bus passenger undercover and secretly filming him in the act after waiting for hours at a bus stop near the high school.
Once she secured the evidence, a patrol team was called in to arrest the man who had apparently been doing it for years.
A ‘Burberry Man” is a reference in Korea to men who wear a trench coat and expose themselves to unsuspecting females.
