GALVESTON, TX (KPRC/NBC) - Police in Texas have arrested a man who they say broke into a woman's apartment and bit her on the neck, claiming to be a vampire.
Investigators say Lyle Bensley used his foot to break the door down and get inside the woman's apartment.
"He got inside and was hissing at her and growling at her and did attempt to bite her on the back of the neck," said Capt. Jeff Heyes with the Galveston Police Department.
Bensley then started dragging the woman down the hallway, but she managed to get away.
A neighbor helped her escape and phone police.
Officers arrived at the apartment complex a few minutes later and found Bensley in the parking lot wearing boxers. He was arrested and charged with burglary.
The victim suffered minor injuries but did not have to go the hospital.
