DAVIS (CBS13) — After a month-long criminal investigation, Davis police arrested 27-year-old Seyyed Ehsun Tabatabaifar on felony charges of sexual battery and false imprisonment Wednesday.
Last month, police say Tabatabaifar got to know the female victim in the case and met her and her friend to go local bars together. While they were out, the victim said Tabatabaifar suddenly restrained her from behind, essentially bear-hugging her in front of the common friend. He is also suspected of sexually battering the victim while holding her against her will.READ MORE: 'Hate Seeing Animals Go Through That': Panicked Pup Finally Rescued After Months RunningUnmasked Crowd At Yuba City High School Basketball Game Leads to School District Investigation
