What Would You Do?

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on February 7, 2019

Silhouette of hooded man or hooligan

My brother came over to my flat this evening, mainly to drop some paperwork off for me to take care of for him. In the end he ended up staying late and watching some of the first season of the new Star Trek series. I’d already seen it but I watched it with him anyway like we used to when I lived at home.

At some point during the mini binge-watch he got up to make a cuppa and I opened the window to get some fresh air. My block having recently been refurbished and having energy-saving insulation put in, it was getting warm in my flat with the two of us and the TV.

As I looked out I saw a car pull in and a dark hooded figure hiding behind a large Ford van in the guest car park, although I’m quite high up I could tell the figure was obviously a male by the way he moved. The car that came in parked in the main car park pretty much facing where the man was, but still had the headlights on. The man at this point was still hovering behind the van looking through the van windows at the car that just came in.

At first I thought it may be a resident avoiding another resident, after all I’ve seen it happen before, me being one of those doing the avoiding, though not to that extent. However, this person was lingering and crouching in the rain behind a van after 12am in a dimly lit car park. So my thought at this point was that the bloke hiding had been trying to get into a car when he was disturbed by the incoming car, and was waiting for the person to get out and go in to the block.

When I had that thought I noticed my sister’s car, who lives in the same block as me, was in the guest car park two spaces away from where the bloke was (some times residents park in the guest car park when the main resident one is full). Thinking of my sister’s car and everyone else’s in there I contacted security to let them know what was going on. They said they’d take a look on the CCTV.

I went back to the window and this hooded-bloke had started to ‘lurk’, and I mean that in every sense of the word. Crouching, peeping through the window and taking steps back beside the van then going back to the van windows to look through. The person in the car who came in was still sat in the car, I wondered if they’d seen this person and were to scared to get out.

Security rang me back and asked me if the person near the van had not just drove in. I explained that even if they had then why would he lurk where he was? He then asked me to call the Police because he couldn’t be sure if it wasn’t just a resident, “Me?!” I said out loud. “Yes” he said ” – as I can’t tell if it’s just a resident and I don’t want to call the Police out unnecessarily”. He said “Please do, if you think they’re needed!” It’s like he was pleading with me to ring the Police. I said “Well I’m not sure myself but I will, I’m going to have another look.” He said he’d go back to the CCTV.

I then went back to the window where my brother now was looking out. I picked up my phone off the window sill, on which I tried to do a video and take pictures earlier; but obviously didn’t work, and I looked down again. The person who came in in the car had finally gotten out and it was a woman. She started walking towards the door and the hooded-bloke then started to move towards her slowly at first. but with his back slightly bent, like he was trying not to be seen.

I thought he was going to tale-gait to get in the block, we’d already had an issue with this over the Summer when the block was being refurbished. Squatters and thieves would come in to try and get in flats or steal the expensive tools. I though that security would see this and send someone around to get rid of them.

Just then though he started to pick up speed very fast, like he wasn’t just trying to make it to the door before it shut; he was going for her! With his hood up and him running now, I thought “Fuck! I should’ve rang the Police before!” So in a panic I shouted “Oi! You, dickhead! Fuck off! Fuck off! Move!” As I and my brother had finished shouting he got to her, she turned around looked at him shocked, then he looked up at us, she looked at him, and he backed up off. I thought he’d done that because he was seen, he only did it to look up, and then shout “What?!” I wasn’t sure if she knew him or not but they both went in the block.

I got on to security again to tell them and it turns out they’d phoned the Police when he started running towards her. They told me they looked like they knew each other and were talking in the block and then told the Police it was OK now. So it turns out it was someone trying to scare a friend or partner.

What was I supposed to think? What would you think? I assumed security, which I contribute towards, would have dealt with it; them having a better view and technology than me? Apparently not, instead they were practically pleading with me to ring the Police. I was ready to ring the Police and then go down there with my brother if the lady would have been attacked. I can only assume security would’ve just sat there and watched if anything had actually happened.
