Sex offender accused of exposing himself to child
BATON ROUGE– Deputies accused a Zachary man Thursday of exposing himself to a 6-year-old after luring the child from an apartment complex with money.
The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office said on September 15 Marcus Dunn, 29, lured a 6-year-old boy to the corner of a Baton Rouge apartment complex by offering the child $50. Once at the corner of the complex and behind bushes, deputies said Dunn exposed himself to the child.
Deputies said the incident was recorded on the apartment’s video surveillance system and the child was able to run away to his apartment and tell his mother what happened. The sheriff's office said the video showed Dunn driving into the complex, speaking to the child, going behind the bush and the child running away a minute later.
Deputies arrested Dunn Thursday and charged him with indecent behavior with a juvenile and attempted sexual battery. At the time of the arrest deputies said Dunn admitted he had been at the complex behind the bushes, but kept changing his story about how the boy got there and saw him exposed.
The EBRSO said Dunn is a registered sex offender and was convicted of obscenity and indecent behavior with juveniles in 2006. Dunn was also convicted of a separate sex crime involving another juvenile in 2009.
