NEW YORK, June 23 (UPI) -- More than a dozen alleged New York subway gropers have been busted in a busy rush-hour demonstration of "Operation Exposure."

The 13 suspects were accused of rubbing, grabbing and flashing women on crowded trains, the New York Daily News said. A 14th was arrested for grand larceny.

What they didn't know was the "victims" were cops posing as businesswomen, police said.
