Blackpool Police hunt for a 'vampire'
An attacker goes for the neck so the police immediately blame a vampire. I may put in a call to the Anti Un-Dead Defamation League. Lytham (England) Today covers it:
POLICE are searching for a man who tried to bite a Lytham shopkeeper's neck in a sickening vampire-style attack.
The bizarre unprovoked assault took place in sandwich shop Dejeuner in Church Road on Monday afternoon.
The 38-year-old shopkeeper was talking to a man - mainly in French - in the shop, at around 2.30pm.
They discussed the weather in French and broken English, before the man grabbed the woman and hugged her.
He then tried to kiss her and as she struggled, attempted to bite her neck. The shopkeeper managed to frantically push the man away and get away from him.
The attacker is described as a man of Asian or Middle East appearance, aged 35-45, with very dark, short hair. He was around 5ft 8ins tall and of average build.
A spokesman for police said: "They were talking when he hugged her, tried to kiss her, and then attempted to bite into her neck.
