A Miami man, 33, is the fourth to accuse Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash, 52, of sex abuse. The alleged victim met Clash as a teenager in Florida and then visited him in New York, said his attorney, Jeff Herman.

"He was hesitant to go to New York, but Kevin convinced him he'd be a father figure to him," Herman said of his client. "Once there, it was a sexual thing."

At press time, Clash's attorney Michael Berger had not commented on the newest allegation.
