Ambush during day, the combat at dusk

By ioannis1973, in Fury of Dracula


I would like to ask the following question. During day, Van Helsing moves to a location and he is ambushed by a reckless vampire. Having suffered 6 damage in total, he decides to escape. The vampire has suffered 2 damage and stays in the city.

At dusk, does Van Helsing engage again in combat with the vampire? If not, he can decide with the action during night to move away from the cursed city so as to rest :-)

Any opinions?
