Scranton Man Accused Of Groping Woman

December 31, 2018

SCRANTON — A 56-year-old man faces charges after police said he groped a woman he went home with from a bar Saturday night, police said.

David Reinhardt, 849 Capouse Ave., tried to touch the woman’s breast despite her telling him to stop several times, according to a criminal complaint.

The Times-Tribune does not identify victims of sexual assault.

The two had started to talk to each other at the Melba Bar on Capouse Avenue. Reinhardt denied groping her breast but admitted he told her he “loved her like a Christian sister,” police said.

He is charged with indecent assault and free on $15,000 unsecured bail. A preliminary hearing is Monday.
