A Staten Island man was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly sexually assaulting a female FEMA inspector who visited his home after Hurricane Sandy.
Upon knocking on his door to inspect the home's condition, The New York Post reports 53-year-old Robert Langshultz allegedly threw the woman "against a wall, tried to kiss her and grabbed her breasts and buttocks." The woman eventually escaped to alert authorities.
The inspector has been identified as a 49-year-old employed at PB Disaster Services, a government contracted company.
Langshultz has been charged with sexual assault and forcible touching.
Shocked neighbors described Langshultz as a hardworking, "terrific" man.
FEMA has not commented on the matter. A spokesperson for PB Disaster says she was not aware of policies regarding inspectors visiting sites alone.
