Hitchhiker Accused of Sucking Blood of Driver

Wednesday, August 2, 2000  

San Francisco -- A transient who thumbed a ride here from Santa Cruz was arraigned yesterday on a charge of aggravated mayhem, accused of biting the neck and sucking the blood of the man who picked him up. ``I need the cure . . . I need blood,'' Eric D. Knight told officers when they arrested him last week. Joshua Roise, 28, of Santa Cruz, picked up Knight, 39, just north of Santa Cruz on July 26, and drove him to a Cala Foods store here. Roise told police that Knight was calm during the 90-minute car ride, but changed when it was time to be dropped off, lunging at his jugular during a two-minute struggle that began with a hug. ``Knight wanted to thank Roise for the ride and gave him a hug,'' the police report says. ``Knight continued to restrain Roise's arms while biting and sucking the jugular vein of Roise's neck.'' Roise eventually broke free and flagged down a police car after Knight fled from the scene on foot. Knight was apprehended a short time later near an entrance to Golden Gate Park. Roise was treated for his bite wound at the University of California-San Francisco Medical Center.

Knight, who left the IRS in 1997 after 14 years as a regional audit agent claims he is overcome by these spells at the drop of a hat. Long time City court beat reporters are starting a pool to see how long this trial will run. Dont forget, quipped one old timer  this is the City that brought you the Twinkie defense all those years ago.

Knight has reportedly received numerous offers of employment, including a key position with the State of California Franchise Tax Board.
