Two Altoona women face charges after police said they groped a woman at a Kettle Street bar.
Carmen J. Molina, 39, and Kimberly J. Streightiff, 41, both of 322 Sixth Ave., are accused of approaching the woman, a patron at John's Sports Bar at 310 S. Kettle St., about 12:30 a.m. Oct. 17, and fondling her breasts and buttocks, according to charges filed by Altoona police.
The woman, who was standing next to the jukebox, said, "I'm not like that," before telling Molina and Streightiff to go back to the bar and drink the beers they had just ordered, witnesses told police.
A few minutes later, the pair walked over to the woman, by then seated at the other end of the bar with her boyfriend, and called out her name before Molina knocked her off her bar stool, police contend. Molina jumped on top of the woman, prompting the woman's boyfriend to intervene, police said.
The man told police he grabbed Molina around the waist, pulled her off the woman and started out toward the door while telling the barmaid that Molina and Streightiff had to leave.
When the man reached the doorway, Molina allegedly grabbed him by his testicles and squeezed, while at the same time Streightiff began to hit him in the back.
Ultimately, the man got Molina and Streightiff outside, where responding police found them. When police arrived, Molina was lying on the ground, their arrest papers note.
Several witnesses were in the bar and saw the alleged indecent assault, police said.
Molina was charged with two counts of indecent assault and harassment and one count each of disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. Streightiff is charged with one count each of indecent assault, disorderly conduct, public drunkenness and harassment.
Molina and Streightiff were charged by summons and are slated to appear for preliminary hearings on Nov. 28 at Central Court.
