Prosecutors are asking for more time to review the findings of a competency exam for a man charged with beating a teen with a baseball bat. Dylan Madderom, 18, is charged with first degree recklessly endangering safety, child abuse, aggravated battery and delivering THC.

Police say on the evening of Aug. 25 they responded to an area near North Elementary School for a battery complaint. The alleged victim, a 16-year-old boy was stuck with a baseball bat and transported to a Marshfield hospital to be treated for his injuries.

Police say the suspect said he saw the teen playing basketball and remembered that the alleged victim owed him money for marijuana. According to the criminal complaint, Madderom pulled his shirt over his head to disguise himself and struck the teen in the head and twice in the stomach with the bat.

Madderom reportedly told police he intended to take any money the teen had on him.

Madderom remains in the Langlade County Jail. His next court appearance has been scheduled for Sept. 29.
