Cookie Monster creep pushes two-year-old to the ground

A man who dresses as Cookie Monster in Times Square was hauled into court yesterday to face charges for allegedly pushing a 2-year-old boy to the ground and cursing him and his Bollywood-actress mum in a tip dispute.

The New York Post reports that Osvaldo Quiroz-Lopez, 33 — wearing a Cookie Monster-blue sweatshirt with white letters that said, “Like What You See?” — was arraigned and held in lieu of $1,000 bail on charges of reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

On Sunday, he screamed at Parmita Katkar, an actress from India and former beauty queen, “Give me money! Give me money! I get $2 for a photo,’’ after he posed for photos with her son, the criminal complaint alleges.

When Katkar told him she didn’t have any cash on her, she “heard the defendant state in substance to her, ‘You are a bitch, your son is a bastard, and your stuff is trash.’

“She then observed the defendant place his hands on her son and push him, causing her son to lose his balance and nearly fall to the ground,’’ the Manhattan court complaint said.

Katkar yesterday said her son Samay is still traumatized.

“All he keeps saying is, ‘I don’t like the Cookie Monster, I don’t like the Cookie Monster,’ ” she told The Post.
