A homeless man claiming to be a vampire attacked a woman outside a New Hampshire food co-op on Tuesday. After being apprehended, he told police he was also the comic book hero Ghost Rider, Captain Jack Sparrow of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, and Mr. Miyagi from The Karate Kid.
At around 1:40 A.M., Jacob May, the 21-year-old homeless man, approached a female Concord Food Co-op worker as she was carrying boxes out to a dumpster. May first asked if she needed help, and upon being told no, he informed the woman that he was a vampire and shouted, “Just touch me, I can save you!”
May then reportedly enveloped the woman in his arms, and they fell together to the ground. The woman’s male coworker rushed out to help her, brandishing a box cutter. May responded by running inside the co-op and hiding inside a walk-in freezer.
As the male worker attempted to lock the suspect in the freezer, May escaped and the pair continued fighting. In the meantime, the female victim called the police.
Responders arrested May on the spot. He is believed to have been under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. After he was cuffed and hauled away, May reportedly told authorities he was not just a vampire, but also, “Ghost Rider, Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean, Mr. Miyagi from The Karate Kid, and a leader of a band [although he didn’t specify which one].”
This is the second time in less than a week May has been arrested. A few days prior, authorities say May allegedly went to a man’s house, knocked on the window and asked if he “felt safe.” May told authorities at the time he was under the influence of marijuana, alcohol, methamphetamine, and “spice.”
May is currently being held and is facing charges of burglary and simple assault.
