Man arrested for alleged April assault at Western Motel


A man who allegedly assaulted another man at a Philadelphia motel last week has been arrested.

Cortez D. Cole, 25, 1125 West Avenue, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault on Thursday, April 29. 

He remains in the Winston County Detention Center on a $25,000 bond. 

Philadelphia Police Det. Bobby Pattillo said Cole was located at the Super Inn & Suites, 1526 Mississippi 16 W, through information provided by a tipster. 

Pattillo said the charge stems from an incident reported on the previous Sunday, April 25 at the Western Motel, 1011 Holland Ave. 

Cole allegedly assaulted Marshon Cobbins at the motel that evening. 

“Cobbins suffered a broken nose and also had to receive 18 staples due to being struck multiple times with a blunt object wielded by Cole,” Pattillo said.

Authorities said more charges could be pending as an investigation continues. 

A PPD social media post on April 30 said the arrest came from information provided by an anonymous tip.

“Philadelphia Police Department would like to thank the public and everyone who offered tips,” a statement said.

The case has been forwarded to the District Attorney for consideration by the next grand jury. Cole was indicted in 2015 on two counts of burglary of a dwelling.
