Police Beat: Man Fired After Threatening to "Cut Up" His Co-worker

A 23-year-old man revealed a little too much information to his supervisor about his differences with a co-worker at Wrico Stamping.

There’s a fine line that exists when revealing information about fellow co-workers with supervisors. A 23-year-old male Wrico Stamping employee learned that lesson the hard way when he crossed that very line.

At 8:15 a.m. Wednesday, the 23-year-old employee went to his supervisor and said if his 30-year-old co-worker, “came at him like that again, he’s going to cut him up.”

How the co-worker came at the suspect is unknown. However, the supervisor sent the clearly angry 23-year-old home for the day.

The 30-year-old man who was the target of the threat said he wasn’t worried about being harmed by the man.

But according to Menomonee Falls Police, the man who was sent home can get comfortable – he was also fired.

Police have been unable to contact the 23-year-old at this point for further follow up.
