New Zealand man ‘attacked by vampires’
Details of the bizarre late night incident on Mount Victoria, an unlit beauty spot that overlooks the capital, Wellington, emerged after two people appeared in court jointly charged with wounding with intent to render a man unconscious.
James Phillip Brooks, 22, and Xenia Gregoriana Borichevsky, 19, were both remanded on bail without entering a plea.
A warrant was issued for the arrest of a third accused, James Eric Orr, 19, who failed to appear at Wellington District Court.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of 14 years in jail.
