Man faces aggravated assault charge in connection to Sunday incident


Philadelphia Police have arrested a man wanted on a warrant for aggravated assault in connection with an incident reported Sunday at a local motel.

Cortez Cole, approximately 25 years old, was arrested on a felony warrant for the aggravated assault incident on a male victim Sunday, April 25 at the Western Motel at 1011 Holland Ave. Authorities say more charges could be pending as an investigation continues.

Police said Cole was located at the Super Inn & Suites, 1526 Highway 16 W, through information provided by a tipster. 

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