N. Huntingdon Township insurance agent faces sexual harassment charges
An agent at a North Huntingdon Township insurance office is facing indecent assault charges for allegedly sexually harassing a 70-year-old female colleague.
North Huntingdon police charged Robert L. Rebb, 54, of 3425 Lake Ridge Drive, Murrysville, with four counts of indecent assault, and one count each of indecent exposure, harassment and open lewdness in connection with incidents that allegedly occurred at his Allstate Insurance office on Route 30 between Jan. 31 and March 14.
According to the criminal complaint, the victim told police she has worked at the office for six years and Rebb "got increasingly rude and crude" after his Jan. 30 birthday. The victim alleged Rebb showed her offensive jokes and pictures of naked men and women despite her objections.
The victim alleged Rebb called her into his office during lunch when the other agent was out and exposed his genitals, forcing her to touch him and masturbating in front of her. She told police she endured the harassment until Rebb allegedly called her into his office and grabbed her breast.
Police said the victim told her husband, who reported the behavior to the other agent. The victim said she was reluctant to report the behavior because she needs her salary and it is difficult to find a job at age 70.
Rebb faces a preliminary hearing April 18 before North Huntingdon District Judge Douglas Weimer.
