In Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., the nation's largest residential treatment center for troubled youths is struggling to cope with a case of sexual abuse in which a 14-year-old was sodomized with a broomstick, while being held down by a counselor..
Sometime between 9 and 10 p.m., the authorities said, the victim, a resident of Wolfe Cottage, one of 22 residences on campus, was chased and cornered in a shower room by 16-year-old Elliot Perryman, who sodomized him with a broomstick while Jason Brown, 29, an assistant cottage supervisor, held him down. It was unclear what prompted the attack, the police said.
