|"I'M GOING TO EAT YOU'|
"I'm a vampire and I'm going to eat you," 22-year-old Josephine Smith told 69-year-old Milton Ellis as she sunk her teeth into him.
Despite being in wheelchair the 69-year-old Ellis managed to escape and called for help at a nearby Shell gas station, where he had just met Smith, who immediately called the cops.
Police found a half naked Smith covered in blood but uninjured outside the abandoned Hooters, where the attack took place.
Officers told the St Petersburg Times she had no idea what happened or why her clothes were off. Ellis said she was dressed when he last saw her.
A police insider revealed: "We see a lot of weird, nasty and downright horrible stuff on the job, but for most of the boys, this is by far the weirdest case they've had to deal with.
"Needless to say there were a few raised eyebrows down at the station when they reported this one in. Mainly though, we're just glad the guy's alright."
Ellis told cops he first encountered Smith after a relative dropped her off and after he tried to call someone to to pick her up he 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.
