The man accused of slashing tires in Mayfair - remains in jail but his lawyer wants his bail reduced.

44-year-old David Toledo - the self-proclaimed town watchman turned vandalism suspect is being held on $270,000.

Authorities say Toledo is responsible for damaging dozens of vehicles in his Mayfair neighborhood over the past several months.

Toledo's lawyer William J. Brennan told Action News that he is worried about his client's safety.

"I think that until we get a little more assurance that there is not some vigilante out there, he has some concerns and so do I," he said.

Brennan also says Toledo has received threats and his wife moved out of the couple's Aldine Street home as a precaution.

Toledo is facing 60 criminal counts for his alleged connection in the tire slashings.
