A Hispanic camp counselor accused of sexually abusing a young camper has been arrested for attacking another child

Endrick Torres, 33, abused a 9-year-old girl who attended the Big Bird's Playhouse camp on Staten Island, including several times on a camp bus and at a movie theater, prosecutors said. Torres was first arrested and arraigned on August 14 for another sex abuse incident that occurred on a bus, prosecutors said. The mother of the second victim came forward after seeing news coverage of Torres' initial arrest and asking her child about the counselor. Torres, called "Mr. E" by campers at Big Bird's Playhouse, had been a counselor there for four years, prosecutors said. Torres was released on $15,000 bond following his first arrest.
