The neighbour (the one with the knife) did it again. I heard the doorbell went to the door, but couldn't see anything out the window so I decided to open the door and as soon as I did, she popped out and said call the police. I shut the door immediately and locked it and then called 911. I'm shaking. I CAN'T deal with a person like this.

Maybe you should move! I am serious!! I would be too worried about my own safety and my kids..
Are you alone? Do you have someone that can come over while the police sort this out?

There are cops all over outside right now, and I asked them to come see me when they were done. I over heard one officer say to another go get the shield...whatever that is. DH is here with us. He did grab the bat, just in case...eeek....but we own this house and they are tenants in an upstairs duplex next door. Gotta be something I can do to get her out.

Don, she did this a few months ago...pounded on my door and aksing me to call the police cause someone was in her place trying to hurt her. As I grabbed my phone I headed outside as I didn't want my kids to hear any of it, well she ended in front of my door while I was near the stairs on my porch and she brings her hands around from her back and she was holding a knife. And not no kitchen knife either. I freaked, got away real quick and came in locked my door and waited for the police. Turns out she was on something and the person in her place was her friend. And now this. Scared the crap outta me that no one was there and as soon as I open my door she pops out...wt????

I'm pretty sure its a larege plastic barrier that they can carry and it protects them from whatever. I think only the special units have them. Are they regular police officers, or ones dressed in all grey?

Ok...so I just talked with the officers and heres what is what.

Apparently there was a big fight, she is leaving...he is staying and back a few days ago all kinds of cops where here too and and ambulance, he OD and the cop said he should have died cause it was that bad. Well the cop also said that there are needles everywhere up in there. He advised me not to answer the door when they come regardless of anything...and that if my kids go out and play to watch for needles.

He also said that chances of them moving out in a few months is good cause these kind don't usually stay too long as they move place to place.

Makes me feel more secure....NOT!!!

If they are renting, can't you contact their Landlord and have them evicted??? There has to be a clause in their contract or something.

Stay safe and {{{ hugs }}}

The landlord is one who doesn't care what happens as long as the rent is paid.

Actually you can complain to the landlord about the ongoing disruption and if he choses to do nothing you can file a grievance against him and even threaten legal action. As a landlord he is required to ensure that his tenants do not disrupt the neighbors as part of his tenancy agreement. Because there has been police involvement the landlord cannot fall back on the "your word against mine" excuse as so many tend to do. I would not sit back any longer an let this go on. You have kids who's safety is being threatened and that landlord is just as liable as the tenants he choses to reside in his home.

You and your neighbors need to call the landlord and discuss with him all the issues you have had with these tenants.

I would be telling him in detail what the police told you and asking him flat out if he knew that these tenants posed such a risk to the neighborhood. No one should have to live in fear of leaving their own home or allowing their children to play outside for risk of being poked by a needle or worse yet caught up in a domestic dispute.

I would also contact the landlord/tenant board and speak to someone there.

I know that you can threaten legal action against the landlord if he does not make an attempt to deal with his tenants or better yet evict them and that you can use legal aid for that service.

This is crazy-serious. I wish I knew what to say. You obviously can't sit by and hope for the best. I would discuss this with the landlord and maybe let him know about the concerns that you have with this person taking revenge. I can only assume that any decent landlord would not want people like this living in their appartment. I do believe that if a tenant is breaking laws (using the app't. to do drugs), there is likely more he can do to get them evicted QUICKLY. If the police have already witnessed some illegal activities, maybe they can confirm this fact so that the landlord has a better change and getting them out?

YIKES!

I hope they do something.

I had a schizophrenic try to burn down my house twice and also throw rocks through our windows. It was always in the dark and she always ran. I knew, and the police knew who it was. There was no proof though. It only stopped because we moved.

Well, think about it.....she showed up at your door. Then the police show up at hers. Of course she knows YOU called, right? But she would have no idea of knowing who complained to the landlord since the police are so involved now and the whole neighborhood saw police cars there. It could have been any of the neighbors, police, etc.

I would really get on it about talking to the landlord. This is not to be taken lightly. Especially since you have kids that play outside. You never know when these whackjobs could come outside and do something.

I would call the cops at any little thing they did plus I would be calling for any and all bi-law infringements...like noise...did you know that the noise bi-law is 24/7...and not the after 10pm like most people think.... I think the more times the cops are there banging on their doors the more likely something will get done.... they will either get tired of it and move, the cops get a hold of the land lord and make them do something...and i would get your neighbours in on it too.....

I would be calling everyone and anyone...
