So last night, I come home around 11.. and Iím pulling my bike off my car after having it tuned up at the bike shop. I notice this guy out walking, and he cuts across the parking lot onto the sidewalk near the condo. He walks directly towards my car, which kind of weirds me out a bit, but I didnít think too much of it. He starts to talk to me and I could immediately tell the wires werenít all connected upstairs on this guy. I was pretty sure he wasn't drunk.. thought he could possible have a form of mental retardation. He starts saying something about how itís a nice bike, and asks if Iím going riding. I say thank you, and no, Iím just bringing it home, all while not really looking up at the guy as I attach my front tire. He then asks me (not making much sense) something about if I live here alone, and then quickly diverts back to questions about where I ride, how its a nice bike, and slips in another do you live by yourself. By this time, I'm starting to get nervous as I'm the only one in the parking lot. My cell phone was still in my car at this point. I don't really acknowledge him much, say have a good night, and quickly walked to my condo. I didnít turn any lights on in the house or anything because I didn't want him to know which place I went into, and remembered my cell phone and some other things I wanted to get out of the car were still there. So, I head back out a few minutes later, heading across the grass towards my car. The Creeper is trying to HIDE BEHIND A TREE.When he realizes that I see him, he stops peaking out from behind the tree and hides behind it again. So at this point, I start to get a little bit nervous, and just turned around, and came back inside for a little bit. I looked out my window, and now heís sitting on the benches outside, looking at my place. Iím extra creeped out by this point, and really wished I had my cell phone on me. I turned off all the lights again, and waited about 15 minutes.. looked out the living room window and he had walked up the stone path beside my unit (I could hear them shift). I looked out the peep hole and he stood outside for a few seconds, before walking up the stairs and out of sight. I found my mace in my closet, and went out to my car about 20 minutes later to retrieve my cell phone and such, no sign of him. I decided against packing stuff for this weekend in my car last night because I didnít want to be out more than needed. I was leaving anyways for the night, and headed to the airport to pick up a pilot friend of mine.
It takes a lot to make me worry about my surroundings (I walk from the bars to the metro by myself, no second thoughts.. grew up in an inner city, so I don't have too many worries about being able to handle myself)Ö but there was something not right with this guy. If I would have had my cell phone on me when he was hiding behind the tree watching for me, I probably would have called the cops.
Can I still report this the next day? I've never really dealt with anything like this. I told my roommate and his girlfriend about it so they can watch for it as well.
