Police are looking for a man accused of biting a teen on the neck Wednesday night.

The teen said the man attacked him, bit him on the neck, breaking the skin and ran off, police said.
Police are looking for a man standing 5 feet 8 inches tall with brown hair.

Note from Dr. Pecos: While this may be the act of a lunatic, bear in mind that Corpus Christi has seen its share of vampire outbreaks. The first recorded attack there took place inside General Zachary Taylor's camp in 1846, just before the war with Mexico. In the 20th century, the FVZA conducted sweeps in Flour Bluff, Padre Island and Downtown, among other places. Hopefully, this isn't the start of a new outbreak.
