News, Self-described ‘incel’ charged with hate crimes in attacks on women in Orange County : detailed suggestions and opinions about Self-described ‘incel’ charged with hate crimes in attacks on women in Orange County .
A 25-year-old Anaheim man is facing felony assault and hate crime charges in connection with two violent attacks against women in Orange County, prosecutors said Tuesday.
Johnny Deven Young posted videos on his YouTube channel that show him sexually harassing and pepper-spraying four women in two separate attacks, according to the Orange County district attorney’s office. A man who tried to intervene in one of the alleged assaults was also harmed.
Prosecutors said Young is a self-described “incel,” a portmanteau of “involuntary celibates,” an online subculture of disgruntled men who espouse misogynistic views and express sexual frustrations about their inability to attract women.
Once videos began circulating on social media, the Costa Mesa Police Department identified Young as a suspect in the Orange County attacks.
