New Philly Tire Slasher Strikes

This time in Holmesburg.


Just a few weeks after the notorious Mayfair Tire Slasher was sentenced to two years probation for his nefarious deeds, Philadelphia Police are looking for the man who went on a tire-slashing spree in the Holmesburg section of Philadelphia in the early morning hours on Thursday. The vandalism occurred around 3:40 a.m. on the 7900 block of Decatur Street and the 4200 block of Frost Street. Several vehicles were involved.

Police describe the suspect as a white male in his late teens to early twenties, 5’10”, 160 pounds, wearing a blue t-shirt and dark pants. If you recognize this loser, call police at 215-686-3135.
