FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. (KMOV.com) – A man accused of exposing himself to a woman in Fairview Heights neighborhood is now in custody.

Paul Schweiger, 49, was arrested Tuesday after detectives were able to locate him while working on a job site in Pontoon Beach, Ill. 

The victim, a Fairview Heights woman, told police she was walking near the intersection of Dunhill Dr. and Willow Spring Hill Dr. when a man drove up slowly beside her.

The woman says the man called for her attention and when she looked over to him, she observed him sitting in the driver’s seat, partially unclothed and performing a lewd act.

Surveillance video footage of the van was captured by a resident’s camera in the neighborhood.

Schweiger is charged with one-count of misdemeanor public indecency. 

His bond is set at $5,000.
