The NYPD cop charged with a raping a drunk woman in her East Village apartment in 2008 testified yesterday that he was too gentlemanly to tell his partner about what he claims was her effort to seduce him.

“I don’t kiss and tell,” Officer Kenneth Moreno told Manhattan prosecutor Coleen Balbert. “If I have anything with a young lady I don’t say anything.”

Moreno, 43, is accused of having sex with the passed-out Gap exec, who is now 29, during the last of three post-midnight visits he made to her apartment after being summoned to help her from a cab. His partner, Officer Franklin Mata, is accused of being a lookout.

Moreno denied having sex with the woman, but testified that while Mata was dozing the woman stripped and pulled him into her bed.

Balbert pressed.

“The same (accuser’s name) who was standing in the bathroom vomiting ... was the very same woman that was the seductress in the bedroom? Is that what you're telling us?"

“You’re just making this up as you go along, aren’t you?” she said.
