NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – A Times Square “painted lady” is getting an orange jumpsuit.

Police have accused Emelia LaPorta, 26, and another “desnuda” of taking advantage of a man with autism. The NYPD was still looking for the second woman Saturday.

The two allegedly scammed the man out of money in Times Square on Sept. 12.

Police say the 30-year-old man was walking home through Times Square after attending a program for people with autism when he was stopped by topless duo.

They asked him if he wanted to take their picture and told him it would cost $50, according to police.

He said he didn’t have any money, but they allowed him to take their photos—and then walked him to an ATM, where they convinced him to take out $100, police said.

The man got home and explained what happened to his mother, who called police.
