Tustin man held in connection with sexually battering women, police say

Tustin police said a 23-year-old man suspected of sexually battering women was arrested by officers after he was confronted by the husband of one of his victims.

The woman alerted her husband, who followed Andrew Dassian to an apartment complex and detained him until officers arrived, the Tustin Police Department said Monday.

"The victim positively identified the suspect as the person who groped her," police officials said in a statement.
