Howevever, Rauch goes on to say, “Vlad Dracula was doubtlessly cruel, but not more so than other princes of his time”. Just as cruel as everyone else … not sure that’s the tag line Tepes fans would choose. But, as they say, impalers can’t be choosers.

Seck was driving a passenger to Bronx Community College, when the passenger pulled a gun on him and asked for the driver’s money. A struggle ensued.
The passenger both pistol whipped an bit Seck. Yup, bit him! Seck finally over-powered the robber who fled the scene. The incident has led the local press to dub this fellow “the vampire robber”.
