A 41-year-old, Swatara Township man, has been charged by West Shore Regional Police with Indecent Assault.

On Wednesday, August 21, 2013, WSRPD received a report from a 17-year-old juvenile female, that  she was assaulted by her manager, at work.  The girl works at a business located in the 400 block of Market Street, Lemoyne.  The girl told police that after she had clocked out, for the day, the manager, identified as Vishnubhai Prahladbhai PATEL, from the 600 block of Yale Street, Swatara Township, asked her to go to the back area of the business.  Once there, he allegedly tried kissing the girl when she told  him no and pushed him away.  PATEL then allegedly grabbed her below the waist area.  She pushed him away again, left the store and contacted police.

PATEL was taken into custody, at the business, without incident.  He was transported to MDJ Beckley’s office, where he was arraigned on one count of Indecent Assault.  MDJ Beckley set PATEL’s bail at $50,000.00.  He was then taken to the Cumberland County Prison where he was processed and held because he was unable to make bail
