Man suspected of burglarizing Shaler business arrested in Pittsburgh
The Allegheny County Sheriff's Office arrested a Shaler man accused of burglarizing a landscaping company, officials said Wednesday.
David Interthal, 34, was detained without incident about 3:15 p.m. on Mount Pleasant Road in Pittsburgh's North Side, Shaler police said.
Police charged Interthal with burglary, trespassing, causing or risking a catastrophe and criminal mischief in connection with an incident last Thursday at Hoffman Tree Service & Landscaping on Seavey Road.
Shaler police had asked the public to be on the lookout for Interthal. Police issued a warrant for his arrest and warned that he could be carrying a knife.
Surveillance video captured Interthal ransacking the landscaping business and pouring gasoline, investigators told Trib news partner WPXI-TV .
The company's owner, Kyle Hoffman, told WPXI that he was stabbed in the leg and chest by Interthal in May.
Court records from May show that Interthal was charged with burglary, aggravated assault, terroristic threats, harassment and recklessly endangering another person.
Interthal was awaiting arraignment in the Allegheny County Jail.
