Police in Lancaster County were called to the scene of an alleged groping at an Arby's in East Lampeter Township last Wednesday night.
The victim told officers she was manhandled by a driver as she leaned over to hand him his order.
The man, who appeared intoxicated, then drove away, but a description of his Toyota 4Runner led police to a nearby Travel Lodge.
36-year-old James Cowan of Fitzgerald, Georgia, was subsequently arrested and charged with one count of indecent assault.
He was released on his own recognizance after posting bail and is due back in court this Friday.
