The vampire attacked just before midnight on the porch of a vacant Hooters.
Milton Ellis, 69, was sleeping in his motorized wheelchair when he awoke to find Josephine Rebecca Smith, 22, of Pensacola on top of him, said police spokesman Mike Puetz.
She told Ellis she was a vampire and bit his face and neck. She bit off chunks of his face and part of his lip, Puetz said.
Ellis managed to escape and called for help at a nearby Shell gas station, where he had just met Smith. Face bloodied, he directed police to the Hooters at 10400 Roosevelt Blvd. N.
Police found Smith there, half naked and covered in blood, but uninjured. They said she had no idea what happened or why her clothes were off. Ellis said she was dressed when he last saw her, police said.
Ellis first encountered Smith after a relative dropped her off the Shell station, at Roosevelt Boulevard N and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street N, police said. Smith tried calling a relative in Pensacola to pick her up. Ellis invited her to hang out with him at the vacant Hooters until someone picked her up. He eventually fell asleep.
Smith was arrested on a charge of aggravated battery on an elderly person. Bail was set at $50,000.
Ellis, who needed stitches after the attack, has been arrested numerous times in Pinellas County for offenses including panhandling, disorderly intoxication, trespassing and possession of an open container.
Something about this story does not ring true.
A VACANT Hooters?
What's up with that?
I am wondering why they felt it necessary to include this information. I mean if he had a record that included soliciting prostitutes, that would be one thing. This guy is a heavy drinking bum, but I don't see how that mitigates being attacked by a crazy b#$%h that has seen too many "Twilight" movies.
Laz would hit that with the force of a large mallet hammering a wooden stake through the heart. ;-)
Hopefully after he fitted her with a suitable muzzle!
Gee, hate it when that happens.
Well at least we can thank ADA that he got his motorized wheel chair on the porch.
Should we inquire as to where this motorized wheel chair came from? He lives in it?
Is this classified as a ‘mobile home’?
Other than that, at least the story makes sense??
I think they had to provide the backgound on the victim, because the reader would be left with the nagging question:
Who the hell in their right mind sleeps in a motorized wheelchair in front of a boarded up Hooters?
Without context, it sounds like a frat house prank.
They didn’t give that much background on the attacker.
