A Chandler man accused of a vampire-related aggravated assault pleaded not guilty in a Maricopa County Superior Court yesterday.
Buckle up -- this is a weird one.
According to court documents obtained by New Times, the alleged "vamp," 24-year-old Aaron Homer, and his 21-year-old "vamp" girlfriend, Amanda Williamson, are "into vampire stuff" and got angry when their roommate, 25-year-old Robert Maley, refused to allow them to slurp blood from his arm.
In an exchange with a Chandler police officer, Maley was asked by the officer "he wants to cut you again so he could suck your blood?".
Maley says he'd let his roommates suck his blood in the past but this time he wasn't interested.
Bleeding heavily, Maley didn't immediately call an ambulance because there was a warrant out for his arrest for a probation violation. Rather, he ran out of the apartment leaving a
snack for Homer and Williamson trail of blood leading out of the apartment.
Simultaneously, firefighters were treating someone next door to Maley's apartment when they saw a man with blood gushing out of his arm. They called police.
When police arrived, Williamson and Homer were sitting in the blood-covered apartment. Williamson said she stabbed Maley in self defense after he attacked her. Homer told several different stories -- none of which were believed by police -- before finally settling on claiming Maley made fun of their "religion," so he stabbed him.
Williamson was arrested on charges of false reporting,
Homer was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, and Maley was arrested on his probation violation warrant. He was also treated for the wound, which required several stitches.
