COSTA MESA — Police on Thursday arrested a man accused of groping two girls on an Orange County Transit Authority bus.
Herath Premaratnea, 55, of Los Angeles was taken into custody shortly after 6 p.m.
Police say surveillance video shown on a local news station helped lead them to the suspect.
Apparently, after the story aired, someone called police to report they recognized the man as Premaratnea and knew where he was.
Premaratnea is suspected of being involved in at least two incidents that happened about 5:40 p.m. Monday aboard the OCTA bus traveling near Placentia Avenue and 18th Street in Costa Mesa.
