Cousins who were looking out for each other held down a man last month after he groped a 14-year-old girl.

The victim told authorities that 45-year-old Victor Andrade groped her as she boarded a bus on Dec. 20 near 43rd Avenue and Olive avenues shortly after 4 p.m.

Officials said the girl stayed at the front of the bus while her cousin witnessed the incident from the back of the bus. At the next stop, the victim’s cousin forced the suspect off the bus and held him until police arrived.

Andrade was arrested and charged with on one count of aggravated assault.
