A 16-year-old girl accused a counselor of sexually assaulting her at the Delaware treatment facility where she is staying.

Delaware State Police arrested 27-year-old Christopher Denigris Thursday. He was charged with two counts of rape and released on $10,000 bail.

The accuser at Brenford Place, a residential treatment facility for juveniles with mental health disorders where Denigris worked as a youth rehabilitative counselor, said he sexually assaulted her twice last weekend, according to state police.

State Troopers believe that Denigris gave the girl his e-mail address prior to the alleged assaults and that the two communicated over e-mail, police said. His computer was seized by police.

Anyone who believes they have a child who may have had contact with Denigris at the facility should call police at 302-697-2104.
