Woman Arrested After Slashing Ex-Boyfriend’s Tires & Leading Police on Pursuit

UPLAND, Calif. – A 21-year-old woman was arrested following an assault, vandalism, and pursuit.

Early Tuesday morning officers from the Upland station responded to the 400 block of north Silverwood for the report of a vandalism and assault. The victim told authorities that his ex-girlfriend, Natalie Mendoza, slashed his car tires and attempted to assault him. When officers located Mendoza driving nearby, she refused to stop her vehicle, leading officers on a pursuit.

In order to end the pursuit, officers conducted a pit maneuver causing the vehicle to crash near Foothill Boulevard and Redding Way.  The woman attempted to flee on foot, but officers quickly took her into custody as she continued to fight with officers. Mendoza was booked into the West Valley Detention Center for assault with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest. She is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on March 7, 2019.
