A Glendale man wound up in handcuffs last week for allegedly slashing the tires of several vehicles parked near his home back in February.

John Sanchez, 28, was arrested on July 9 and has been charged with seven counts of criminal mischief in the fourth degree, seven counts of unauthorized use of a vehicle in the third degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree, court records show.

According to the criminal complaint, the slashings all took place on the same night, Feb. 5, near Sanchez’s residence on 88th Place near Myrtle Avenue in Glendale. In the middle of the night, Sanchez allegedly stabbed the tires on seven vehicles on the block.

The next morning, six victims discovered that both of the passenger-side tires on their vehicles were flat, court records indicated. One of the victims owned two vehicles that were vandalized.

As noted in the complaint, the victim told police that Sanchez could be seen on surveillance footage from the area going around to the passenger side of cars and making stabbing motions near the front and rear tires.

Upon his arraignment on July 10, according to court records, Sanchez was also charged with failure to obey a court order related to a domestic violence incident on May 22.

Records show that Sanchez violated an order of protection filed against him by his wife that states he cannot have any contact with her from July 2017 to July 2019. Sanchez is accused of engaging in a verbal dispute with his wife on May 22, according to the criminal complaint.

Sanchez posted $1,000 cash bail for the tire-slashing case and $500 cash bail for the domestic violence case, records show. He is due to appear in court for both cases on Sept. 13.
