May then allegedly claimed he was a vampire and began running toward her.

The employee ran inside the store for help as May allegedly screamed, "just touch me, I can save you," according to a Concord Police Department statement.

"A male co-worker arrived at which time the intruder attempted to punch him, initiating a fight between the two," the statement said.

Cops say the male co-worker grabbed a box cutter and told May to stay back, at which point May ran into a walk-in freezer.

Police arrived a short time later, at which point the officer said May told them he was a "vampire, Ghost Rider, Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean, Mr. Miyagi from The Karate Kid, and a leader of a band."
