PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office has approved charges in two cases where a total of four women were assaulted in South Philadelphia. Malcolm White, of Brooklyn, New York, will be charged with aggravated assault, simple assault reckless endangerment, and other related offenses for each of the victims.
