SANTA ANA, Calif. — A 25-year-old man has been charged with pepper spraying women in hate attacks in Southern California, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Johnny Deven Young faces multiple charges, including assault and illegal use of tear gas with improvements to the use of a deadly weapon and hate crime, the Orange County District Attorney’s office.

Prosecutors said Young posted videos of himself pepper spraying and harassing women and calling himself an “incel,” a member of an online community of men who call themselves involuntary celibates and express anger at women.

Young was suspected of confronting female victims outside bars in Costa Mesa and assaulting several people in attacks between November 2021 and April this year, police said.

“These charges send a very strong message to that entire community that we do not tolerate violence against women in any form,” District Attorney Todd Spitzer said in a statement.

Young was arrested in San Mateo County and returned to Orange County, where he appeared in court on Monday. He is being held in lieu of $500,000 bail and his arraignment has been postponed to October 10.

A message asking for comment was left at the public defender’s office.
