A Mapleton man, arrested for a Canton home invasion last year, was sentenced Monday to eight and a half years in prison, according to court officials. 28 year old Toby Dansizen pleaded guilty to home invasion while a second charge of aggravated fleeing was dismissed as part of a plea agreement. Police say Dansizen forced his way into an apartment where his ex girlfriend was staying. Authorities claim he attacked a female victim with a machete who had been trying to stop Dansizen from hurting his ex girlfriend. Dansizen then fled into Peoria where he was later arrested. Besides the prison time, Dansizen must also pay his victim two thousand dollars.
