from com.atlassian.jira import ManagerFactory
issueManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueManager()
issueFactory = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueFactory()
authenticationContext = ComponentManager.getInstance().getJiraAuthenticationContext()
subTaskManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getSubTaskManager()

issueObject3 = issueFactory.getIssue()
subTask3 = issueManager.createIssue(authenticationContext.getLoggedInUser(), issueObject3)
subTaskManager.createSubTaskIssueLink(issue.getGenericValue(), subTask3, authenticationContext.getLoggedInUser())

I tried adding a line like

if you want to provide username only - try to set

https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/6.2.7/com/atlassian/jira/issue/MutableIssue.html#setAssigneeId(java.lang.String) during creation of issue

issueObject3.setAssigneeId("user1"); (java-style, set syntax according to language)

Thanks Alexey it works very well :-)
