MEDINA — A Medina County grand jury has indicted a 36-year-old Medina man, charging him with breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s home and attacking her with a knife.
David L. Saunders Jr., of 903 Wadsworth Road, Apt. E, was indicted last week on three counts of aggravated burglary and two counts of felonious assault, first- and second-degree felonies.
Saunders faces 11 or more years in prison if convicted.
Police arrested Saunders Nov. 24 at a house on the 400 block of South Huntington Street. Police said Saunders broke into the house and cut his ex-girlfriend with a blade.
His Dec. 3 indictment accuses him of breaking into the woman’s house with the intent to attack her.
Saunders awaits a Monday arraignment before Common Pleas Judge Christopher J. Collier.
He’s being held at the county jail on $80,000 bond.
Saunders was sentenced to five years in prison out of Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court in 2001, convicted of aggravated arson, felonious assault with a firearm and receiving stolen property.
He has no previous criminal record in Medina County courts, but has a history of drug abuse and alcohol-related charges in Medina Municipal Court.
He’s also been charged with criminal trespassing.
