Police are reportedly arresting more people for sex crimes in the subway.

According to the Daily News, the NYPD has made 128 arrests for crimes like sex abuse and groping so far this year.

That's up from 104 over the same period in 2013, a 23 percent increase.

Police say the spike is due in part to more plainclothes officers being sent out to look for sexual predators.

The report says most of the groping incidents took place at the Times Square and Union Square stations
