(Newser) – A Michigan teen came away from a showing of New Moon with a bite on her neck, courtesy of the 40-something man sitting in front of her. “Every so often he would lean back and make a sexual comment that was very unnecessary,” Erin Westrate tells WZZM13. Afterwards, she says he came up behind her while she was trying to leave the theater, grabbed her hair, pulled her down, and bit her neck.

The bite didn’t break the skin. Police say the man could face assault charges, if they can find him. They’ve snagged an image of the suspect from the theater’s surveillance cameras, and are hoping someone steps forward to identify him. They describe him as a white male, roughly 45 years old and five feet tall, with short, spiky dark hair. (Read more The Twilight Saga: New Moon stories.)
