A slew of crazed, often cannibalistic, attacks across the United States has left many people concerned about a so-called “zombie apocalypse.” But a craven new assault in Corpus Christi, Texas, — has ignited fears about a “vampire” attacker.

A 16-year-old boy was walking along Shoreline Boulevard in Corpus Christi near Corpus Christi Bay Wednesday night, according to Texas radio station 1200 WOAI, when he bumped into a man by accident.

What should have been a harmless misunderstanding then took a turn for the weird — and perhaps the vampiric? — when the man turned around and bit the boy on his neck, according to the radio station.

Police became involved, and Senior Police Officer Julia Hernandez-Garcia told WOAI that the boy’s mother took him to the hospital with minor injuries.

“Apparently he left a bite mark and broke the skin and took some skin off,” Hernandez-Garcia told WOAI. “This is a very unusual case … I’ve been here for 27 years and I’ve never heard of anything like this.”

Police describe the suspect as a Latino male in his early 20s, and they told WOAI he ran away after biting the 16-year-old, whose name was not released as he is a minor.

The attack is at least the second of its kind in recent months, as last month a man with “vampire teeth” was being sought by police in California for allegedly attacking a homeless man in San Diego.

The recent “vampire” attack in Texas comes on the heels of a series of brazen, drug-crazed attacks (mostly at least loosely associated with the drug “bath salts) that have been associated with the “zombie apocalypse.”

The whole “zombie apocalypse” underground conspiracy came to the forefront of the national news cycle in late May, when a man by the name of Rudy Eugene attacked a man in Miami and was filmed chewing on the man’s face before being shot dead by a Miami police officer.

The cannibalistic attack was so violent that Rudy Eugene will forever be known as the “Miami Zombie.” Meanwhile, his victim, Ronald Poppo, has made a miraculous recovery in a Florida hospital after surviving what is known to some as the first well-publicized attack of the “zombie apocalypse.”

In the weeks since that attack, a number of other “zombie”-like attacks have taken place. Here’s a rundown of some of the most gruesome ones, which have helped the “zombie apocalypse” conspiracy persist:

- A man allegedly took a bite out of a fellow human being in a bath-salts-crazed “zombie” attack last month.

- Rumors that the “zombie apocalypse” continues emerged after a “zombie” allegedly ate his 40-pound dog last week.

- A naked, bath-salts-crazed “zombie” allegedly threatened to eat police this week in Georgia.

- A so-called “ninja zombie” allegedly used martial arts moves to fight off police this week in Indiana.

- A Pennsylvania “zombie” high on bath salts allegedly attacked hospital staff this week.

The “vampire teeth” attack is said to have occurred outside a pharmacy around 6 a.m. Monday local time.

The victim, described as a 55-year-old homeless man, was kicked in the head and ribs and was bleeding from the attack, NBC San Diego reported. The vampire-toothed assailant also threatened to kill the victim, according to the police report.

The man with “vampire teeth” was arrested shortly after the incident and charged with assault.

Rob Davenport, a commenter on NBC San Diego’s website, wondered aloud what the world is coming to.

“Last week Zombies… this week Homeless Vampires… Next week flamboyantly gay Werewolves….,” Davenport wrote in a post that had 43 likes as of Tuesday afternoon.

Commenter Jason Atttebury is one of the conspiracy theorists who think the zombie attacks and the “vampire teeth” incident are part of a larger plan.

“The Mayans predicted this. The virus is being spread through illegal narcotics. Roughly 3 percent of the population will be infected and gain undead attributes,” Attebury wrote. “Once the disease has gained a foothold the infection will be spread from any transfer of bodily fluids. That is, if you survive the attack. You have been warned.”

The “vampire teeth” attack comes after a number of incidents that caused concern over a zombie apocalypse.

The most disturbing of those attacks was the one perpetrated in Miami over Memorial Day weekend by Rudy Eugene, who was allegedly under the influence of bath salts when he attacked Ronald Poppo on the MacArthur Causeway and tore off 75 percent of Poppo’s face with his mouth.

Poppo, who was homeless, is listed in critical but stable condition.
