A second suspect was arrested Wednesday in last week’s stabbing of two women in the Back Bay, police said. Boston police arrested Tyler Butler, 20, of Brockton one day after the first suspect — Naomi Charles, 26, of Dorchester — was taken into custody, police said. Butler and Charles face two counts of assault with intent to murder, assault by means of a dangerous weapon (a knife), and assault and battery, said Jake Wark,spokesman for the Suffolk district attorney. Charles pleaded not guilty at her arraignment Wednesday in Boston Municipal Court, and Butler is expected to be arraigned Thursday in the same court, Wark said.
