Police later made contact with Glover at the intersection of Spruce Street and 3rd Street where he reportedly admitted to chasing the two and slashing their vehicle tire.

Glover now faces a slew of charges that include aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, and harassment.
