Escambia County, Florida -- A woman who claimed to be a vampire and attacked a man in St. Petersburg, now faces charges after allegedly attacking her boyfriend with a pair of scissors.
According to WEAR-TV, Josephine Smith was arrested May 26 and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Earl Wynn said Smith working on clothing with the scissors, but had been drinking and was upset that she did not have a job. An argument started, and she stabbed him.
"She didn't do anything wrong here. She just needs mental help," said Wynn.
She is being held in the Escambia County Jail on $50,000 bond.
In the St. Pete case in September 2011, she told a 69-year-old man she was a vampire and allegedly bit his face and neck.
The man told police he was sleeping in his electronic wheelchair outside of a vacant Hooters restaurant on Roosevelt Boulevard, near Gandy and 4th Street North, when he awoke to find her on top of him.
Smith allegedly told Ellis, "I'm a vampire, I am going to eat you," and proceeded to bite him, ripping flesh from his lips and face.
Bloodied, Ellis managed to escape to a nearby gas station, where he called police.
Responding officers found a half-naked Smith covered in blood at the restaurant. She reportedly told officers she had no idea what happened.
