Authorities say that two women at the pool contacted police on June 27 after a male patron allegedly exposed himself to them. He was gone by the time officers arrived.
"It was unbelievable we just couldn't even believe it," said the woman who alerted police to the alleged flashing. "He was like shaking his hips around and his private area was exposed to me and several other children at the time he was actually heading into the changing area."
Poolgoers Tori Schmalstieg and Nicole Kissel said they're grossed out by the entire ordeal.
"I just heard that the guy was being very provocative," said Schmalstieg.
"That's just uncomfortable to think about happening, especially in front of the kids," said Kissel.
Staff members at North Park Pool alerted police on July 1 that the man who allegedly flashed patrons on June 27 was at the pool again.
Upon their arrival, police say that several guests reported that the man had again exposed himself.
Steffy told police that he was at the pool to do laps and officers talked to him as he was "attempting to leave upon his bicycle."
Investigators have charged Steffy with indecent exposure and open lewdness.
Police say that Steffy turned himself in to police on Wednesday afternoon.
The woman that alerted police says she's glad he is facing charges because "he knew what he was doing."
