Charges say North Mankato man threatened to blow up apartment building

A North Mankato man is accused of threatening to blow up an apartment building and making other frightening claims.

Walter Douglas Slocum III was charged last week in Nicollet County District Court with felony threats of violence, felony terroristic threats – explosives, and misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

A criminal complaint says police responded to several disturbance complaints on Feb 7.  Police initially made contact with Slocum, who was apparently upset his landlord was trying to evict him.  Slocum allegedly told police that if he was evicted, it would not “go down good,” and he was not afraid to die.

The complaint says Slocum then told officers he was from Chicago and the recent shootings in Janseville and Waseca “were not s**t.”

Police cleared the scene, but received a 911 call shortly afterward reporting that Slocum was running through the halls threatening to blow up the apartment building.  The complaint says officers arrived to find Slocum had locked the front door and was filming police.  He was eventually arrested.

Witnesses told police they had heard Slocum claim that “killing all these white cows” and was “blowing up the apartment.”  He also allegedly threatened to kill anyone who called 911.
