'Vampire' takes chunks out of man's face & lip

Posted:

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Police say a woman told a 69-year-old St. Petersburg man she was a vampire before biting off chunks of his face and part of his lip.

Milton Ellis told police Thursday he was sleeping in his motorized wheelchair on the porch of a vacant Hooters when the attack happened.

Police spokesman Mike Puetz says the man woke up to find 22-year-old Josephine Rebecca Smith on top of him. Ellis escaped after the attack and called police. Police found Smith at the restaurant, half naked and covered in blood.

The injuries to Ellis required stitches.

The St. Petersburg Times reports Smith, of Pensacola, told police she had no idea what happened.

She was arrested on a charge of aggravated battery on an elderly person. Bail was set at $50,000.
