NEW YORK — A puppeteer who was the voice of Elmo on “Sesame Street” is being sued for the fifth time, accused of sexually abusing a teenage boy.

In a federal lawsuit filed in New York on Tuesday, 25-year-old Kevin Kiadii says he was 16 when he met Kevin Clash in an online chat.

Kiadii attorney Jeff Herman says Clash sent a limousine to pick up the teen in Brooklyn and take him to his Manhattan apartment for sex.

Herman represents four other people who filed similar lawsuits. He acknowledges his clients were compliant but says the 52-year-old puppeteer took advantage of them by playing father to them.

Clash resigned from “Sesame Street” in November. He has denied any wrongdoing. His lawyer hasn’t responded to a call for comment on the latest lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages.
