Now tenants are learning about Toledano's criminal past in an article published this week at The Villager. According to the paper, "he was convicted of aggravated assault and causing bodily injury less than four years ago, and once was charged with trying to swindle a bank out of hundreds of dollars, according to New Jersey court records and police reports."
In a 2012 confrontation that landed two teenagers in the hospital, Toledano allegedly beat the two youths with what police reports alternatively describe as a “crowbar,” “a branch” and “a metal or wood object approximately two and a half feet long.”
And in a separate case three years earlier, Toledano was charged with defrauding TD Bank of $500 in a scheme involving multiple withdrawals from three different banks.
A spokesperson for Toledano and his company, Brookhill Properties, dismissed this disclosure as "character assassination," noting that the incidents "have absolutely nothing to do with Brookhill Properties or the company's conduct as a landlord."
