Asking for a friend:
My condo shares a courtyard with another condo owned by an older gentleman, T. FYI, I'm a petite 30ish woman. T has known dementia issues. I've lived there for almost a year and he asks my name weekly and welcomes me to the complex constantly.
My issue with him is his increasingly hostile and bizarre behavior. He has twice knocked on my door at strange hours and tried to push his way in under the guise of being "neighborly". He sits on his patio at all hours and drinks beers, and a few times I've left for work and have found empty bottles of his favorite beer on my patio. He mumbles things about me when I come home from work. I've had to call the police non emergency line for noise complaints because of his blaring music at 2am and the police told him who turned him in (thanks guys) so now he really hates me. One time he left his keys in his car and the car running for 5 hours until someone went and reminded him.
A few days ago, he took a flying leap off his balconey and survived with a broken ankle and sore back. Apparently he told another neighbor that he wants to kill himself. He said he might go jump off the interstate. Or, he'd call the police over and then get into a shootout with them. I know that when the police and ambulance were called, there was a mention of guns being in his home.
Between the recent apartment shooting in CA, this guy's craziness, and his obvious dislike of me I'm nervous. We've been in contact with his adult son who acknowledges thst there's a problem but doesn't seem to do much. He said he probably shouldn't live alone, but that he's too aggressive to live with his own family. So, help?
