DA expected to drop new charges against SF assault suspect

New charges in a second case against the suspect caught on video attacking a woman outside her San Francisco apartment building will be dropped. 

Authorities said another woman came forward with assault allegations against, Austin Vincent James, 25, after learning of his high profile arrest and release from custody on Aug. 14. 

The woman claimed Vincent brandished a knife at her and a group of friends as they were getting into a rideshare vehicle. 

The San Francisco Public Defender's Office said on Tuesday there is proof that Vincent was in Southern California at that time and the victims wrongly identified him. 

His attorney on Wednesday will ask the judge to again release him from jail on ankle monitor.
