Cops arrested eight men trying to pay for sex in Ridgewood last month.

When will they learn?

Cops rounded up another group of eight “johns” looking for a good time at Ridgewood’s known prostitution hot spot last month.

Officers from the 104th Precinct arrested Giovanni Cruz, 26, of Ridgewood; Vinizio Robles, 29, of East Elmhurst; Phillip Yu, 52, of Woodside; Hector Martinez, 46, of East Elmhurst; Kevin Collins, 56, of Allentown, PA; Hosam Abdo, 43, of Middle Village; Jamaal Canterbury, 45, of Brooklyn; and Pawel Zieleniak, 33, of Ridgewood, on one count of patronizing a prostitute near the vicinity of Cypress Avenue and Starr Street.

According to law enforcement agents, the arrests occurred between the hours of 8:25 and 11:35 p.m. on the night of Saturday, Sept. 30.

According to the Queens District Attorney’s office, Collins and another individual pleaded guilty to one count of disorderly conduct, and could not comment further on the matter because the records have been sealed.

Back in May, officers pinched five men at the very same location for trying to pay for sex. And in 2016, authorities cuffed more than 40 people for patronizing a prostitute on that corner.
