Northfield police said they arrested a 76-year-old doctor Friday for alleged sexual contact and offensive touching of a patient.

Dr. Baltazar Rodricks turned himself into police Friday morning at the Northfield Police Headquarters after a warrant was issued for his arrest, police said in a news release.

Police said the incident occurred during the week of Feb. 15 at a Northfield medical clinic.

Dr. Rodricks was later released after posting 10 percent of a $25,000 bail, police said.
