The infamous Mayfair tire slasher was sentenced to three to six years in prison on Monday for violating his probation in his second arrest for damaging the tires of neighborhood vehicles.
David Toledo, 47, wept and pleaded for mercy before sentencing, the Daily News reported.
Toledo earned himself a stiffer sentence for violating his probation from a previous tire-slashing arrest.
He was sentenced to probation in May 2014 after he was found guilty of slashing his neighbors’ tires, but was arrested again just months later in November of that year after he allegedly propped a glue mouse trap with nails poking out under the tire of a SEPTA bus.
On November 19 around 5:30 a.m. a SEPTA driver spotted Toledo running from the 1600 block of Creston Street, just a few blocks from the Frankford Transportation Center. The driver alerted another SEPTA employee who discovered the device.
According to a Fox 29 report, numerous SEPTA drivers in the same area had found glue traps with nails or punctured their tires on such traps prior to the arrest.
Toledo was first busted in April 2012 and charged with nearly 50 tire slashings over the previous six months throughout Mayfair, including of his neighbors' cars.
Prior to his arrest, Toledo had volunteered with the Mayfair Town Watch as a look-out for the tire slasher, offered assistance to police, threatened to “smash” the hands of the slasher in an interview for NBC, and even slashed his own tires.
