You are absolutely correct: you were violated. And that is exactly the reason why you should tell the police you want to them to file both the harassment charge as well as the indecent assault. There is nothing stopping the officers from filing both charges on the information, unless the District Attorney's Office will not recommend the charges for some reason.
You guarantee doubling your chances of reaching a conviction on at least one, if not both, of the charges by pressing charges on both counts. It's important to remember one charge may not stick, but that does not mean the other fails as well; you can get a conviction on one and not the other. Therefore, it is in your best interest to request both charges be filed against the individual to ensure maximum chance of penalty!
