Now here’s something you don’t read every day:

DANBURY — A 33-year-old woman was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault Saturday after allegedly groping a man playing Santa Claus at the Danbury Fair mall.

(…)

Details leading up to the alleged fondling are sketchy.

“I don’t know what the deal was. It was just bizarre,” the mall Santa told a reporter, referring all other questions about the incident to Cherry Hill Photo, the company that runs the Danbury Fair mall Santa photo setup.

(…)

According to information provided by the Danbury Police Department, officers were dispatched to the mall Saturday at 8:45 p.m.

The mall Santa told police that [the woman] touched him inappropriately while sitting on his lap.

“The security officer at the mall said Santa Claus has been sexually assaulted,” [Danbury Detective Lt. Thomas] Michael said.

(…)

Danbury Fair mall spokeswoman Melissa Eigen called the alleged groping “an isolated incident.”

“The safety of our guests and employees is a top priority, and we strive to create a safe and enjoyable shopping environment at all our facilities and Danbury Fair specifically,” Eigen said.

2007 has not been a great year for mall Santas.

Women do love a man in uniform…

    That proves it, Santa can’t keep chanting Ho, Ho, Ho anymore – there’s some one out there sure to take it as a come-on.
