Community reeling after arrests at Saxon Woods Park

Family and friends of the 16 men arrested in "Operation Overexposure" at Saxon Woods Park insist they had no idea their loved ones were allegedly participating in illicit sex acts.

News 12 Westchester knocked on the door of one of the suspects to find out he is married and that his family knew nothing about the charges against him.

Some of the parkgoers were not surprised. A woman who introduced herself as Joanna says she sometimes saw gentlemen entering the park and making their way to a public facility. Other times, she saw men waiting in their cars.

Of the 16 arrested, nine are from Westchester County. All have been charged with public lewdness or forcible touching.

County police say they are going to increase patrol of uniformed and undercover cops at the park until the problem is eliminated.16 men arrested, accused of illegal sexual activity at Saxon Woods
