Pennsylvania man to trial in 'forcible kissing' of woman

Posted June 14

— A Pennsylvania man has been ordered to stand trial on charges he forcibly kissed a woman in a convenience store parking lot.

Fifty-five-year-old Mazen Salfiti is charged with indecent assault, harassment and disorderly conduct for the April 12 incident in a convenience store parking lot in Lansdale.

A district judge ruled Tuesday that there's enough evidence for Salfiti to stand trial on allegations he grabbed a woman by the arm, pulled her close to his vehicle and kissed her, forcing his tongue into her mouth.

Salfit is free on bond. His defense attorney did not immediately return a call for comment Wednesday.
