Molesting Mario Is the New Anti-Semitic Elmo


He’s a little lower profile than the ranting red Muppet impersonator who’s since decamped to San Francisco, but the Mario look-alike accused of groping a woman’s thigh is in the running to take over the mantle of creepiest Times Square character. Cops arrested Damon Torres, 34, for forcible touching after he allegedly grabbed a woman’s leg in front of the Conde Nast Building (not for the first time, a security guard told the New York Daily News). Fortunately for the Nintendo tourist set, there are two other Marios working the area. Just make sure you get the right one.
