According to wikipedia:

The Slender Man (also known as Slenderman) is a fictional character that originated as an Internet meme created by Something Awful forums user Eric Knudsen (a.k.a "Victor Surge") in 2009. It is depicted as resembling a thin, unnaturally tall man with a blank and usually featureless face, wearing a black suit. The Slender Man is commonly said to stalk, abduct, or traumatize people, particularly children.[1] The Slender Man is not tied to any particular story, but appears in many disparate works of fiction, mostly composed online.

The two girls invited their friend over for a sleepover on Friday night and then lured her into the woods the next day and began their attack.

The “Slender Man” myth was started in 2009 on the website Something Awful. It was originally part of a game to insert scary monsters into the backgrounds of photographs.


"The Slender Man" myth has since inspired thousands of videos on YouTube, as well as, several video games. The main idea is that The Slender Man is faceless and has tentacle arms, and is known to kidnap children.


The victim was left lying on the sidewalk, and was discovered by a passing cyclist who called in the attack to police. If convicted, each of the 12-year-old girls may be tried as adults and each can face up to 64 years in prison.
