An Ohio teenager obsessed with Slender Man stabbed her mother multiples times in an attempt to please the fictional figure.
According to The Daily Mail, the 13-year-old teen attacked her mother with a kitchen knife while wearing a white mask and managed to superficially cut her mother on the neck and face.
“She had her hood up and had her hands covered with sleeves and the mask,” the mother told WLWT News. The mother reportedly was able to survive her daughter's attack relatively OK.
The mother said that before being attacked by her daughter, she discovered references to Slender Man and drawings her daughter made. The Ohio teen’s mother said she has mental issues and was obsessed with macabre imagery, but didn't think her daughter was disturbed enough to try and harm anyone.
Last week two Wisconsin girls were accused of stabbing their classmate in order to try and prove the creepy, fictional character existed.
Unlike the two girls in Wisconsin who are to be tried as adults, the Ohio teen is facing charges as a juvenile.
