Doctors revealed that the married man initially started slicing his body and collecting the blood in a cup to drink from. However when the urge became too powerful, he turned to other sources and has been arrested several times stabbing or biting other people in order to drink their blood.

According to the report, published in the Journal of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, the blood drinking phase started after the man experienced traumatic incidents in his life two years ago, including the death of his 4-month old daughter, the murder of his uncle and his friend killing someone else by hacking his penis and head. The doctors added that the man revealed his 'imaginary companion' urged him to commit the violent acts and even attempt suicide.

"Possibly due to 'switching' to another personality state, he was losing track during the 'bloody' events, did not care who the victim was anymore, and remained amnesic to this part of his act", the report said.
