Infatuated woman breaks into police station to see arresting officer


WEST WYOMING, Pa. – An infatuated woman was arrested Monday after investigators said she broke into a police station to get to an officer she reportedly had been sexually harassing since he arrested her last year.

Ashley Keister, 27, was caught on surveillance video at the West Wyoming Police Department. She was seen banging on the door with a closed fist but when that didn’t work, Keister apparently grabbed a cigarette butt holder and smashed it through the glass door.

According to Police Chief Curtis Nocera, the woman had been under investigation for harassing an officer who arrested her last May, reported WNEP.

The current actions would seem to corroborate the case against her.

Nocera told WNEP that Keister recently contacted the officer on social media and sent him sexually harassing memos, “upwards of 20 plus messages a day.” Moreover, the police agency said she has called 911 just to speak to him.

“I made her sign a piece of paper saying that she wouldn’t contact a specific officer like she’s been,” said Nocera.

But, hours later, Keister reportedly called 911 to tell the dispatchers she was on her way to the station to look for her arresting officer.

Consequently, the infatuated woman was booked on charges of aggravated assault on a police officer, burglary and vandalism. Hence, she was jailed on $50,000 bail. Her public defender could not be reached for comment.
