Last week, we told you about a couple of Chandler residents, who happen to think they're vampires. How do we know this? Because one of them allegedly stabbed their roommate when he wouldn't let them suck his blood.
Today, police released tapes that further confirm the two actually think they're vampires.

In an exchange with a Chandler police officer, the victim, 25-year-old Robert Maley, was asked by the officer "he wants to cut you again so he could suck your blood?".
Maley replied "and I said no and then he flipped because they think they're vampires."
The couple, according to Maley, is "into vampire stuff." And not in that Twilight sort of way.
Maley says he'd let his roommates, 24-year-old Aaron Homer and 21-year-old Amanda Williamson, 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 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.
