City man accused of abusing girls

Karl Brubaker

CUMBERLAND — A city man who once managed the Allegany County Animal Shelter was charged Monday with sexually abusing two girls.

Karl Andrew Brubaker, 41, was arrested Monday by Allegany County Sheriff's Office deputies on an outstanding warrant, according to a news release issued by the Allegany County Combined Criminal Investigation Unit.

Investigators said the case involves "inappropriate sexual contact" that allegedly started in 2011 with a then 15-year-old girl, and again in 2013 with another 15-year-old girl.

"The inappropriate behavior continued for several years with both victims," investigators said.

Brubaker was charged with two counts of sexual abuse of a minor and numerous related charges. He posted bond Tuesday and was free pending trial.

Brubaker had been with the animal shelter when it was operated by Allegany County. The shelter became a no-kill shelter in Dec. 2010, with the operation being transferred to the nonprofit Allegany County Animal Shelter Foundation in July 2013. Brubaker resigned in 2015.
