BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: There is news tonight in the Penn State investigation. A local newspaper reporting new trouble for the former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky . NBC 's Peter Alexander has more from the Penn State campus tonight. Peter , good evening.
PETER ALEXANDER reporting: Brian , good evening to you. Tonight we are learning about two new child sexual abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky , where both alleged victims are still under the age of 18. The Harrisburg Patriot-News tonight reports that the two cases have been opened by Child and Youth Services right here in Pennsylvania within the last 60 days. If they are found to be credible, this could raise new questions about why authorities waited until the end of a three-year grand jury investigation to arrest Sandusky . Also tonight, there are new indications that the Penn State scandal may now include obstruction of justice. According to a source familiar with the investigation, Pennsylvania state prosecutors filed a secret motion in July to hold Sandusky 's charity, called The Second Mile , in contempt after the organization failed to turn over Sandusky 's subpoenaed expense records. The motion was later withdrawn, but many of those records that may have contained details about Sandusky 's relationships with The Second Mile children, Brian , are still missing.
WILLIAMS: Peter Alexander in State College , Pennsylvania tonight. Peter , thank you for that.
