A man was arrested after children reported he was running around naked at a southwest Oklahoma City apartment complex and showed them his penis, police said.

Cody Dane Coachman, 20, was arrested Monday on complaints of lewd acts with a child under 16 and indecent exposure.

Police were called to the 3200 block of SW 74 about 6:55 p.m. Monday.

Officers found Coachman in his apartment, where he began to talk about Jesus and sing hymns, according to the incident report.

One girl at the complex told police Coachman took off his clothes, followed her around holding his “privates” and kept calling her his girlfriend. The girl told him to leave her alone and she couldn't talk to a stranger. She said Coachman tried to touch her private area several times and tried to lift up her shirt, according to the report.

Coachman said the other children were making fun of him and the girl was defending him, so he gave her a hug.

He was taken to the Oklahoma County jail, and his bail was set at $42,000, jail officials said.
