Man Claims To Be Vampire, Attacks Woman

GALVESTON, Texas — Galveston Police said a man bit a woman on her neck and while beating her in her apartment, he claimed to be a vampire. The attack happened early Saturday morning at the Ocean Front Apartments on Seawall Boulevard in Galveston. Investigators said Lyle Bensley used his foot to break the door down and get inside the woman’s apartment. The alleged victim said that she had never met Bensley. Capt. Jeff Heyes with the Galveston Police Department said during the alleged attack, “(Bensley) made hissing sounds and growled.” Police said Bensley started dragging the woman down the hallway but she managed to get away. One of the woman’s neighbors, Damian Gasaway, helped her escape. “It was so scary,” he said.

Gasaway said he helped the woman call police. Officers arrived at the apartment complex a few minutes later and found Bensley in the parking lot wearing boxers. He was arrested and charged with burglary. The alleged victim suffered minor injuries but did not have to go the hospital, police said.
