NEW YORK (AP) — A 28-year-old man has been arrested on charges he slashed five men in the face in the Bronx.

Police said Sunday Corey Glover was arrested on charges of felony assault in connection to the attacks that happened on Saturday between 7 a.m. and noon. It wasn’t clear if he had a lawyer.

Police say four victims were slashed in the face while standing in line at a methadone clinic in the borough’s Mott Haven section. Another man was slashed about nine blocks away near Oak Terrace and Crimmins Avenue.

Police say the suspect may have been angry over missing or stolen property.

The victims, ranging in age from 23 to 50, took themselves to Lincoln Hospital.
