NILES, Ohio (WYTV) — A Warren man is in jail after police reported that he assaulted a child at the Eastwood Mall.
According to Niles police, officers were called to a restaurant at the mall by a woman who said the man, later identified as Melvin White, 52, grabbed her daughter, hugged her and made sexual comments.
White left the scene and was later found by police. He is charged with assault, importuning and criminal trespass.
This wasn’t White’s first run in with the law. He was charged with inducing panic earlier this year after police found him walking down East Market Street in Warren waving a pellet gun in the air.
