Cops say the 28-year-old attacked five men on Saturday morning.

THE BRONX - The man suspected of slashing several people in the face in Mott Haven Saturday morning is now behind bars. 

According to police, 28-year-old Corey Glover first slashed four men while they were standing in line at a methadone clinic near East 148th Street and Willis Avenue. He then attacked a fifth man about nine blocks away. 

The victims range between 23 and 50 years old, and were all taken to Lincoln Hospital. 

Investigators believe Glover, who was caught on surveillance video on East 147th Street, may have been angry over missing or stolen property at the time. 

He’s now facing a felony assault charge for each slashing.
