Texas police have arrested a teen after he broke into a woman’s apartment and attacked her, making hissing sounds and claiming to be a 500-year-old vampire.
Lyle Monroe Bensley, 19, of Galveston, allegedly entered the woman’s bedroom early Saturday morning and bit into her neck as she lay on the bed.
Wearing just a pair of boxer shorts and covered in tattoos, Bensley then reportedly dragged the woman out of her unit where she managed to run away and get into a nearby vehicle.
She later called the police who said Bensley climbed two fences to get away from them, yelling that he “didn’t want to have to feed on humans”.
Bensley told the police that he “needed to feed,” and then said that he has been “alive for 500 years.”
He was taken to Galveston County Jail where he told guards to restrain him for their own safety, police said.
He has been charged with burglary with intent to commit assault with a $40,000 Bond.
