A Chandler man who let his vampire-crazed friends suck his blood once in the past was stabbed by one of them when he refused to let them drink from him a second time, according to police.
Aaron Homer, 24, of Chandler was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and false reporting to law enforcement about 6:30 p.m. Oct. 4. Chandler police say he stabbed his 25-year-old friend in the arm.
His roommate, 21-year-old Amanda Williamson, also was arrested on suspicion of false reporting to law enforcement in connection with the incident.
Police responded to the Tuscany at Chandler Apartments in the 600 block of North Alma School Road that evening after the fire department had responded to a call for service to treat someone. As they were working, fire crews heard what they thought was a gunshot and called police.
When police arrived at the home, they found the apartment covered in blood, a trail of which led them to Robert Maley, 25, who was bleeding heavily from his arm.
Police said Maley lived with the pair and told officers they were into “vampire stuff” and paganism. They said Maley had let them suck his blood once, but did not want them to do it again. When Maley told Homer and Williamson no, Homer became enraged and stabbed him with a knife, according to police.
Homer admitted to stabbing Maley because he was making fun of him and Williamson and their religion, according to a court document.
Police said they found the knife Homer used to stab Maley under a mattress at the apartment.
