[ - ] I moved into my current apartment about five months ago. It's quiet, well maintained, very private (so I don't know or really even see my neighbors). Lately, I have heard a woman shrieking and sounding terrified, maybe abused somewhere in the building. I have tried to figure out which apartment she's in with no luck. What do I do? I want to call police, but I think this would just waste their time, because I can't give them a name, apartment number, etc. Help! 37 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Here is my thinking behind not calling- it will take them some time to get to my building and sometimes these episodes don't last for more than 15 minutes. It's clear to me that something is not right (call it intuition and being the daughter of an abuser), but I have exactly zero information if the cops show up and the building is quiet, which it usually is.
