***UPDATE*** Erin Westrate has admitted that she made up the story about being bitten on the neck by a stranger while seeing a showing of the new Twilight movie "New Moon." Police say they interviewed her again this morning and concluded her story did not hold up:

Police say Westrate admitted to embellishing her story and that she was flirting with the man involved. Authorities say there may have been physical contact between Westrate and the man, but it was not an assault.


EARLIER: The vampire action got a little too real for one "New Moon" fan when she went to the theater to catch the blockbuster movie. Erin Westrate was sitting behind a 'creepy' 30 to 40-year-old man who kept turning around making sexual comments to her:

"Every so often if I said something or my friend said something he would lean back and make a sexual comment that was very unnecessary and not needed," says Erin.

As if that wasn't bad enough, when she was waiting in line to leave the theater after the movie finished, he grabbed her by the hair, pulled her down, and bit the back of her neck. Luckily, he didn't break the skin. Police are still searching for the creepy culprit.
