A Woodstock man has been arrested after he allegedly threatened to slit a woman’s throat and kill her if she did not stop a pending criminal investigation, court documents show.
Tanner B. Heidtke, 22, a transient of Woodstock, was charged with intimidation threatening physical harm, a Class 3 felony, and phone harassment threatening killing, a Class 4 felony.
Heidtke called a female relative of his on Monday and threatened her, according to a criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court.
The complaint said that Heidtke told the woman, who resides in Woodstock, to stop a pending criminal investigation in order to not have him arrested.
Heidtke allegedly threatened to kill the woman and “slit her throat,” the complaint said.
Heidtke was also charged with damaging the same woman’s mailbox by pushing it over into the street on Sunday.
Officers with the Woodstock Police Department arrested Heidtke Monday morning and transported him to the McHenry County Jail.
A judge ordered him held on a $21,000 bond. He would need to post $2,100 cash in order to be released.
Heidtke is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
