    [PHI] Mayfair Residents Hit by a Tire Slasher -- AGAIN
    Police are investigating a series of tire slashings in the same neighborhood where two years ago a neighbor went on a tire-slashing spree. NBC10's Katy Zachry has the story. (Published Thursday, May 29, 2014)

    Neighbors in the area of the 4200 block of Frost Street told that tires were slashed on a handful of vehicles overnight.

    Philadelphia Police said someone vandalized at least six cars between midnight at 5 a.m. Thursday.

    Some cars on Walker Street were also hit, according to neighbors. Police didn’t confirm that report.

    No pricetag was placed on the total damage. A neighbor said they captured the slashings on surveillance video.

    The latest slashings occurred about half a mile from where a series of slashings put Mayfair on alert more than two years ago.

    David Toledo, a former neighborhood activist, was recently sentenced to probation for a spree of dozen of tires slashings in Mayfair.
