Two lecherous subway creeps remain at large for separate perverted incidents in Manhattan, police reported.

Law enforcement sources said the most recent incident happened in Midtown at 6:50 a.m. on Oct. 16, when a pervert groped a 26-year-old woman at the Lexington Avenue-61st Street station.

According to police, the victim was waiting for an uptown 6 train on the platform when the creep approached her from behind and grabbed her buttocks while saying, “Your butt is so fat.” 

Following the attack, the victim pulled out her cellphone and recorded her attacker on video. He’s shown attempting to cover his face.

Cops described the suspect as a man with a dark complexion in his 40s with a medium build, standing 6 feet, 3 inches tall and weighing about 200 pounds, with short black hair. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, a blue t-shirt with multi-colored lettering on the front, a blue-and-white face mask, a blue surgical glove on the right hand, and blue jeans; he also carried a blue umbrella.

The second incident involved a man who secretly recorded a woman at the 7th Avenue subway station, near West 53rd Street, on the B line at 2:02 p.m. on Sept. 26.

Law enforcement sources said the 25-year-old victim walked up a staircase while exiting the station when the creep approached her from behind. He then lifted up her dress and took a cellphone picture of her buttocks.

After snapping the dirty picture, cops said, the pervert fled out of the station in an unknown direction.

Cops described the voyeur as a man in his 20s with a thin build and light complexion, standing 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing about 140 pounds, with black hair in a ponytail. He was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt, a black mask, black shorts, black socks and white sneakers while carrying a black book bag.

Police obtained security camera footage of the creep exiting through a subway turnstile.
