Posted By on Mon, May 2, 2016 at 9:58 AM

West Chatham Precinct Patrol officers of Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department arrested and charged Dustin Hughes, 33, with two counts of sexual battery just minutes after a Sunday evening incident reported at an apartment complex pool on the 100 block of St. George Boulevard.

"The incident reportedly occurred at about 7:30 p.m. and involved an 17-year-old female victim. Bystanders helped officers locate Hughes, who was found inside of his apartment," police said.

Hughes cooperated with Metro officers. He was arrested and charged within an hour of the alleged crime. Hughes was transported to the Chatham County Detention Center without incident.
