Months after Mayfair residents were plagued by slashed tires, two more Northeast Philadelphia neighborhoods have been victimized by a similar outbreak.
Philadelphia police are investigating vandalization of almost a dozen cars Saturday night in Port Richmond and six more vehicles Sunday night in the area of Rosalie and Bingham Streets in Lawncrest. Police have not said if the latest tire slashings are related and no arrests have been made.
In the previous outbreak, Mayfair residents were stunned in April when one of their neighbors, David Toledo, 44, was charged with vandalizing 55 tires. Toledo had been one of the most vocal neighbors calling for action to nab the tire slasher. - Andrew Maykuth
