Northwoods man arrested after wearing Jason mask, scaring people

EAGLE RIVER (WAOW) -

What looked like a Halloween prank turned into something more suspicious in Eagle River.

Eagle River Police say they arrested a Conover man Thursday who was wearing a Jason mask, entering businesses and handing out candy.

The police chief says Darren Slizewski, 30, went into Memorial Hospital, stood behind people and scared them.

When someone asked what he was doing police say he answered, "Don't worry, I only kill on Fridays."

For a short time nearby Northland Pines School was locked down.

Slizewski has been released from jail on bond.
