New York City may be turning into Transylvania, the land of vampires.
Police are looking for the public's help in nabbing a man they say attempted to rob a livery cab -- and then repeatedly bit the cabbie on the neck and elsewhere when he wouldn’t fork over the cash.
At the destination, the suspect allegedly pulled out a black semi-automatic handgun, and demanded the cabbie’s money.
When the driver refused, the reputed bloodsucker apparently turned violent, biting the victim approximately five times on the neck, arm and back – before fleeing in an unknown direction, without the money.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his thirties, 6’0’’, wearing a black leather jacket. And if Hollywood movies can be believed, he may have fangs.
Anyone with information is asked to call CRIMESTOPPERS at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
