ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - A St. Petersburg man who had dozed off in his motorized wheelchair woke up to find himself being attacked by a woman, according to police.
Morton Ellis, 69, said he fell asleep after parking his wheelchair on the porch of a vacant Hooters to escape the rain.
He said the woman, 22-year-old Josephine Rebecca Smith, told him she was a vampire as she bit off chunks of his face and part of his lip.
Ellis managed to fend her off and called police. Officers found Smith at the restaurant, half naked and covered in blood.
Ellis required a number of stitches.
Smith, who is from Pensacola, told police she had no idea what happened.
She was jailed on a charge of aggravated battery. Her bond was set at $50,000.
