DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa. — Police have charged a 37-year-old Middletown 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 St., WPMT reports.

Tyler Ashenfelder is charged with aggravated assault, tampering with evidence and false imprisonment, according to Middletown Borough Police.
