Earlier today I was setting on the couch watching my favorite TV program when I heard the front door handle being jiggled and twisted. About 5 seconds later, a tall young man say 18 to 23 years of age was seen walking past my front window. Walking very fast. My apartment is ground level. I stepped into my flip flops and quickly walked outside.
In those few seconds, this asshole managed to simply vanish. I walked around the building and looked into the distance as well. He had vanished. Locking the front door, I quickly walked down to the front office and explained to them what I had seen and heard. The outdoor staff was made aware and they quickly dispersed, searching the grounds. They did not find the jerk. I told the staff what the person looked like and what he was wearing.
I never had this happen in three years living in Las Vegas. There are all kinds living in this complex. The area itself though is much more upscale than many areas of the city. That helps but just so much. An older couple was seen dumpster diving last night in the complex. Probably after cans and other recycle material.
I’m not fearful of living here now. This is easily a much better apartment complex than the surrounding complexes, if it were not, I’d not have chosen this place. Let’s just hope what happened this morning won’t ever repeat.
