Hi all, I am a 26 year old, single female who has lived alone for nearly 2 years quite happily. Last Sunday I was in the bath when someone started knocking on my door. It was dark outside and I am nervous answering the door at the best of times, but, thinking it was one of my neighbours, I shouted 'in the bath, come back in ten minutes.' Normally when my neighbours knock they also identify themselves and this person didn't which made me suspicious. They then started hammering on the door with some force. I was then too nervous to open the door. They went away and I then felt guilty for not answering. Anyway, last night I stayed in after working extremely long hours this week and was looking forward to an early night. However, about half 9, the door knocking started again. I went towards the door, albeit cautiously, thinking it was one of my neighbours. However, whoever it was started banging the letterbox. I know my neighbours would never do this, so I stopped and refused to answer the door. A few minutes later, the person then started banging on my windows. Thankfully the curtains were shut and I didn't open them because I didn't want the person to see me! This carried on for twenty minutes. I phoned my friend who told me to call the police, but the knocking stopped after 20 minutes so I didn't bother, fearing the police would think I would be wasting their time. However, I didn't sleep a wink all night and have felt on edge all day. When the postman knocked on my door this morning I jumped out of my skin. If this happens again do you think I should phone the police (on the non urgent number of course)? Or would they think I was wasting their time? My friends have suggested that it could be kids playing a prank, but if it is kids they are doing a very very good job of being quiet. The knocker didn't make a sound apart from the knocking! Thanks for reading.
