Kentucky pastor admits exposing himself to teen girl while shopping with son, police say

A Kentucky pastor has been arrested after he was accused of exposing himself to a teenage girl while shopping at an outlet store with his 7-year-old son.


A woman reported to police that a man had exposed his genitals to her 15-year-old daughter as she shopped in the junior’s section Feb. 13 at Burkes Outlet in Russellville.

Officers said the store’s video surveillance camera captured the man as he manipulated his zipper, and police posted a still image from the video on the department’s Facebook page asking for help identifying the man.

Police said they received numerous tips identifying the suspect as Kevin Lohse, the pastor at Woodlawn Baptist Church.

Lohse turned himself in Feb. 21 to police, who said he confessed to exposing himself to the girl.

He was arrested Thursday and released later in the day from Logan County Detention Center.
