OKLAHOMA CITY -- A substitute teacher was arrested for attempting to entice a 14-year-old student at a local park.
Wednesday evening Oklahoma City police responded to a possible child abuse incident at a park in the 9600 block of S. Shartel Avenue.
While investigating the incident, officer determined Sangbum Oh, 46, was trying to entice a 14-year-old female to the park using text messages and phone calls. It is unclear the nature of the phone calls or the text messages.
"The text messages were an attempt to get this girl to meet this teacher alone with nobody else present," said Oklahoma City Police Capt. Patrick Stewart.
Mr. Oh had been the teen's substitute teacher at Westmoore High School. He was arrested and charged with attempting to entice a minor from legal custody, stalking and violation of the computer crimes statute.
The incident has shocked both the students and faculty of Westmoore.
"We think we're getting a good education that we should, and we're building to be a better person and this happens," said Bryce Mastin, Westmoore High School junior.
Police said OH lived at the Oak Place Apartments just across the street from Westmoore High School.
The Moore Public School District issued a statement Thursday stating that Oh is no longer employed by the district.
