LAKEWOOD, OH (WOIO) -

Even on the soccer fields in Cleveland, 12-year-olds like Lola Crespo are still talking about what happened in Wisconsin.

"She came up to me and I said what is it, and she said these two girls stabbed someone like 19 times," said Lola. 

Some parents are just hearing the news.  

"This is a travesty that happened in Wisconsin. I'm besides myself. First time I heard it now," said parent Mark Rose. 

Two 12-year-old girls lured their friend into the woods and stabbed her 19 times. This was all to impress a fictional character named Slenderman.

The online game is on the website called Creepypasta. It's filled with short horror stories.  

Slenderman is said to stalk, abduct or traumatize children. But authorities say the two girls took their fantasies about Slenderman and made them a reality.  

"Now-a-days the games are getting more violent and people are starting to act like that," said 12-year-old Marley Rose. 

This is horror enough for any parent.

"We do have to talk to our kids about what they watch and what they play. Unfortunately there is no dialogue between parents and kids nowadays," said Lorna McClain. 

The two girls who stabbed their friend are being charged as adults for attempted homicide. The victim survived and is in stable condition.
