ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A Rockford Diocese priest has turned himself in after he allegedly exposed himself to an employee at a Rockford gas station.

According to the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department, the incident happened in late March at the Road Ranger gas station on South Main Street. The employee told deputies he had exposed himself while in the store and also while parked in a vehicle in the parking lot.

The suspect's license plate number had been obtained but the vehicle had not been located.

After additional follow-up, an arrest warrant was obtained Friday for 44-year-old Father Aaron Brodeski. Father Brodeski is assigned to a parish in Batavia.

Father Brodeski turned himself in after the warrant and was taken to Winnebago County Jail.

Father Brodeski is charged with two misdemeanor counts of public indecency.

The Rockford Diocese and Bishop's office have been appraised of the investigation.
