Elmo Tickles… and is Arrested

You really don’t know who is behind the mask.

A New Jersey street performer dressed as Elmo was arrested for fondling a 14-year-old girl in Times Square.

Inocente Andrade-Pacheco was taken into police custody on Saturday after he allegedly groped a young girl’s rear on Broadway near 46th street.

New York Daily News reports that the victim approached Andrade-Pacheco with her family and asked for a photo with the 54-year-old man.

As the family posed with the costumed man, Andrade-Pacheco hand began on the victim’s back before wandering inappropriately downwards to her backside.
