Attack of the East Village Jimmy Choo Vampire

January 24, 2013 | Andy Cush

Yesterday in the East Village, 28-year-old Melissa Scott attempted to steal a pair of $350 Jimmy Choo boots, then bit a store employee and drew blood when she was apprehended. Scott then fled from Cadillac’s Castle on 9th Street to St. Mark’s Place, where a police officer made an arrest. Then Scott bit the cop, too.

According to DNAinfo, Scott clamped down so hard on the employee that a neighbor had to come help pry her off. “[The employee] had to go out and get all her booster shots, tetanus, et cetera,” said the owner of Cadillac Castle.
