Waukesha juvenile allegedly makes threat while referencing Slender Man stabbing case

June 19, 2014

A couple weeks after a 12-year-old girl was stabbed 19 times by two classmates in Waukesha, a boy allegedly made reference to the incident during a confrontation with another juvenile. 

According to the police report, a boy, approximately 10 to 12 years old, told a caller to call police just after 5:30 p.m. June 13 at 1500 Fox River Parkway after another boy allegedly threatened to stab his sister with a stick and reportedly said “if you don’t get off the property we will stab you like on Big Bend Road with a knife."

Police spoke with all the juveniles involved and both accused the other parties of swearing and making threats.

Police were unable to substantiate what was actually said and all parties were advised of their behavior.

All the juveniles involved in the incident were between the ages of 10 and 12 years old.

Big Bend Road in Waukesha is where two 12-year-old suspects, Morgan E. Geyser and Annisa E. Weier, allegedly lured their friend into a wooded area to kill her with a knife on May 31.

According to the criminal complaint, the girls told officers that they planned for months to kill their friend as a way to prove themselves worthy to a fictitious online horror character named Slender Man. 

Geyser and Weier have been charged as adults with attempted first-degree intentional homicide. They are being held at the Washington County Juvenile Detention Facility in West Bend on a $500,000 bail.

Geyser's attorney, Anthony Cotton, was granted a competency evaluation for his client, while attorney Joseph Smith Jr., who is representing Weier, has made a request for discovery materials prior to the preliminary hearing. 

Geyser and Weier, who both attended Horning Middle School in Waukesha with the victim, will next appear in court on July 2.

The victim, meanwhile, has been released from the hospital and is recovering at her home.

Her parents have set up an online fundraising campaign to help assist in the girl's medical and legal expenses. As of June 19, 15 days after creating the Hearts for Healing campaign, $47,700 has been raised.
