The infamous subway groper has claimed its eighth victim this week.

83-year-old Conrado Aleman was arrested and accused of persistent sexual abuse, forcible touching and sexual abuse after he “ground upon and grabbed” a 36-year-old woman aboard the northbound No. 2 train in Broadway and West 96th Street late Thursday, according to the New York Daily News.

Authorities told the outlet that the Hamilton Heights octogenarian is still facing a previous charge stemming from an arrest on November 2019 when he positioned himself behind his seventh victim, a 34-year-old woman after he boarded the No. 2 train at Broadway.

At that time, Aleman had no idea that a plainclothes police officer witnessed when he began to thrust himself against the victim.

He was then arrested at the West 96th Street station by Officer Manhael Aberu, New York Police Department Sergeant Christopher O’Connell told The New York Daily News in a separate article.

Known for his extensive police record, Aleman was also arrested under the same misdemeanor on June and April 2018. His sixth arrest came in August when he was busted for allegedly groping two women.

He was later charged with two counts of forcible touching and sexual abuse, said Gothamist.

After pleading guilty to forcible touching and disorderly conduct in December 2018, Aleman struck a plea deal that required him to go six months without new arrests and attend counseling and adult day care.

Should he be successful, Aleman has the opportunity to “get time served and the top count will be wiped.”

Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case as he was arrested in April.
