A Cumberland County man has been jailed on charges he molested a teenager and a second girl who was 6 years old, according to police.

Andrew Michael Konetsco, 19, of Mechanicsburg, admitted to investigators that he put his hands under the girls’ clothing, and that on one occasion he grabbed and choked the older girl after she resisted his sexual advancements, Silver Spring Township police said.

The girl was 13 ar 14 years old when she was assaulted, police said.

Konetsco was charged Thursday with simple assault, aggravated indecent assault and several counts of indecent assault. He was committed to Cumberland County Prison on $100,000 straight bail.

Silver Spring police said they also charged Konetsco for a separate incident in November when he allegedly stole a vehicle from a home in the first block of Hogestown Road.

He admitted to stealing the car after finding the keys in another vehicle at the home, crashing it into a parked car while using it, then returning it the following day, police said.

In that case, he was charged with theft by unlawful taking and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, and bail was set at $7,500 straight.
