caricias indebidas


Explanation:
I think that "manoseo" is too colloquial.

"caricias indebidas (or, no deseadas)" [improper or unwanted caresses] is a more formal way to put it.

contacto físico innecesario


Explanation:
Ana:
Aunque "fondling" significa acariciar en este contexto creo que "contacto físico innecesario" puede expresar mejor la idea.

"El acoso sexual puede manifestarse de diversas formas, entre las que cabe incluir:
i) el contacto físico deliberado y no solicitado, o un acercamiento físico excesivo e innecesario; "

Suerte y saludos de Oso ¶:^)
