A man who dresses up as Super Mario and charges tourists for pictures in Times Square has been arrested for allegedly groping a woman. 34-year-old Damon Torres of North Bergen, NJ, was accused of touching a 58-year-old woman inappropriately.
The woman reported the incident to a Times Square Alliance Security Guard, and Torres was arrested shortly afterwards. He was charged with forcible touching and possession of marijuana.
“He walked up to her and touched her private parts,’’ the security guard told the New York Daily News. “She said she had similar encounters with the character. She said she was offended.”
