MANITOWOC — A Two Rivers man told police a song containing gruesome lyrics about mutilation was going through his mind prior to allegedly attacking his former roommate with a samurai sword Saturday, Manitowoc Police Det. David Vorpahl said Wednesday.
Nickolas Blackwelder, 19, faces charges of first-degree reckless injury, aggravated battery, mayhem, burglary and disorderly conduct.
Troy Jaschob, 36, was sleeping in his east-side Two Rivers home when Blackwelder reportedly entered the residence and attacked him. Police found Jaschob unconscious on his neighbor’s porch in the 1000 block of 19th Street about 4 a.m. with life-threatening injuries, according to a Two Rivers Police Department news release.
Blackwelder admitted striking Jaschob several times, causing deep cuts to his head, torso and arms. He said he was upset that Jaschob had allegedly accused him of stealing his property while they lived together, according to the release.
Manitowoc Police Det. Mike Stone said Blackwelder is a self-proclaimed follower of the Insane Clown Posse, a hardcore hip-hop band known for its lyrics about murder. Blackwelder told police the song that was in his head — “Chicken Huntin‘” — calms him.
Circuit Court Commissioner Patricia Koppa set cash bail at $50,000 Wednesday. Koppa said during the bail hearing that mayhem is an uncommon but serious felony charge. Wisconsin State statutes define the act of mayhem as “whoever with intent to disable or disfigure another, cuts or mutilates the tongue, eye, ear, nose, lip, limb or other bodily member.”
Jaschob was transported to Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay Saturday, and later gave police Blackwelder’s name. Two Rivers Police Capt. Brian Kohlmeier said Jaschob has been released from the hospital and is recovering.
Blackwelder was taken into custody for a burglary probation hold about 1 a.m. Sunday pending questioning. Blackwelder remains in custody in Manitowoc County Jail.
The Manitowoc County District Attorney’s office is expected to file a criminal complaint before his July 19 initial appearance.
While in custody, Blackwelder also was arrested for second-degree sexual assault of a child. On Saturday evening, he and a 15-year-old girl walked to Lincoln High School where they allegedly had sexual intercourse, according to the police report.
Blackwelder reportedly told the female he knew having sex with her was wrong because of her age and he would be in trouble if police found out.
Stone said the incident was not a force-rape situation, but the female cannot give consent because she is underage.
Blackwelder has been convicted of multiple charges of criminal damage to property, burglary, party to a crime of burglary, party to a crime of theft, escaping from criminal arrest, operating a vehicle without an owner’s consent and bail jumping in 2007 and 2008 in Manitowoc County.
