WYOMING, Pa. (AP) _ Police in Pennsylvania say a woman smashed her way into a closed police station looking for an officer she'd been sexually harassing ever since he arrested her.

Police say 27-year-old Ashley Keister, of Nanticoke, used a large cigarette butt receptacle to smash glass doors into the West Wyoming police building around 12:45 a.m. Monday. Once inside, she started rummaging through filing cabinets.

West Wyoming Police Chief Curtis Nocera says Keister had been under investigation for harassing an officer who arrested her last year. He says she sent sexually harassing messages on social media and would call 911 just to talk to him.

The break-in was caught on surveillance cameras.

When officers responded, video footage shows her swinging at them.

Keister was charged with aggravated assaulted on a police officer, burglary, institutional vandalism and related charges.

A message seeking comment from her public defender wasn't returned.
