Cops: Customers fondled at area Victoria’s Secret
HARRISBURG — Police say a man who fondled two female customers at a Victoria’s Secret store in Pennsylvania before ramming a police car when officers tried to keep him from getting away.

But he’s also charged with aggravated assault and attempted homicide for the police chase afterward, during which police say he made a U-turn and rammed a cruiser head on.
The responding officer was treated at a hospital and released for his crash injuries.
Police in Lower Paxton Township gave chase as Novitzke fled in a minivan.
