A Texas man was behind bars Monday after breaking into a stranger's apartment and biting her neck, claiming he was a 500-year-old vampire who "needed to feed," the Houston Chronicle reported.
Lyle Monroe Bensley, 19, is being held on a charge of burglary with intent to commit assault after the incident, which occurred early Saturday in Galveston, Texas, about 50 miles southeast of Houston.
Wearing only boxer shorts, Bensley forced his way into the apartment of a woman he did not know and made growling and hissing noises while biting and hitting his victim in her bed, officers told the paper.
The woman managed to get away and call police, who found Bensley in the parking lot of the apartment complex.
"He was begging us to restrain him because he didn't want to kill us," Galveston Officer Daniel Erickson told the Chronicle. "He said he needed to feed."
Bensley also told police, "I'm a vampire and I've been alive for over 500 years," according to Erickson.
Emergency medical personnel said the suspect did not appear to be under the influence of drugs. Authorities accordingly placed a mental health hold on Bensley and set his bond at $40,000, the paper reported.
The woman, meanwhile, suffered minor injuries, according to KTRK-TV.

Either this man is sick in the head, or he is exactly what he says he is. I can't help but find this incredibly hilarious at the same time. hahahahahahahaha
Even in jail, Bensley warned guards to restrain him for their own protection, gnashing his teeth with a "need to feed," police said. It's unclear whether Bensley was intoxicated or on drugs at the time of the attack, but police said a psychiatric evaluation is pending.

If this is a vampire he doesn't seem to have learned how to feed in his 500 years I guess he learned ho to make the news though

No there are NO such thing as vampires, this is just some sick twisted weirdo.
Plenty of nutters claim to be vampires, and they all end up killing eventually. They are psychopaths who try and justify there actions with stuff from fiction.
