DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa. — Prosecutors charged a 37-year-old Middletown, Pennsylvania man accused of assaulting a woman, then carrying her into a bathtub and forcibly bathing her in a Nov. 27 incident on the first block of S. Union Street.
Tyler Ashenfelder was charged with aggravated assault, tampering with evidence, and false imprisonment, according to Middletown Borough Police.
