A man caught masturbating in front of a two-year old child is now in jail, the Orange County Sheriff's Department announced Tuesday.Tach Van Truong, 44, was arrested Sept. 23 in the El Modena neighborhood of Orange.

The child's mother caught Truong touching himself in front of the toddler which prompted a male relative of the child to chase Truong to his house and hold him until deputies arrived.

He was booked on suspicion of annoying or molesting a child and indecent exposure.

Detectives think the suspect may be responsible for similar acts in the past and are asking any potential victims to come forward.
