DOVER, N.Y. -- A Pennsylvania man has been charged with molesting a 13-year-old girl at a Seventh-Day Adventist camp and conference center in Dover, state police said.

Henry A. Fernandez, 50, of Allentown, was arrested on Wednesday, July 20, and charged with second-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child, both misdemeanors, police said.

Police said the alleged incident took place two days before at Camp Berkshire, a former country club in the hamlet of Wingdale.
