21 Y.O. Reveals How She Caught Her 73 Y.O. Stalker Neighbor, Shares Details Of The Story In Her Viral TikTok Video

Wherever you decide to live, there is a huge chance that you’ll end up having a neighbor. And experience shows that there are all kinds of neighbors: those who say “hello” every morning and are genuinely friendly and the ones who make you want to move out as soon as possible. It seems that there is also a third “category” of neighbors. The ones that you might never actually see or meet. And this sure sounds great for those who don’t really want to get involved in any neighborhood drama. But what if one day you find out that your quiet neighbor is actually stalking you?

TikTok user @seejoyy decided to share her first New York apartment story and why she had to move out from there. The video that now has 1.2M views tells a story of how she found out that her neighbor was actually stalking her.

@seejoy, whose real name is Catherine, as she later reveals in her video, started her story by stating that she has to share her story just to make sure that she understands how real it is. She was living in an apartment, located in Brooklyn, for 3 years. In a later video, she showed the condition of the apartment and that she was going to move out from it anyway. And it seems that stalker neighbor made things move faster.

Catherine starts her story by telling that she had a few noise complaints from her old, 73-year-old neighbor who she’d never actually met. After this, she received a note from him, but she didn’t think much of it as she thought it was funny and this was the way how this old man decided to express his anger. The note stated: “Dear Catherine, word’s getting around that you’re a floozy who can’t keep it in their pants.” What she was aware of is that he addressed her by her actual name, not by the one she was called on a daily basis.

The story reached its peak when she found him standing in her apartment while she was sleeping. Catherine woke up immediately and told the man to leave. After this, she called her parents and the police. When the police came, they at first had trouble with getting into his apartment. But according to the TikToker, they finally arrested him.

The young woman was taken back to her parents’ home, where she found out that her creepy neighbor was actually sending her multiple notes, similar to the one she got after noise complaints. These messages sent directly to her previous house in Long Island made her speculate that he might have been coming to her apartment while she was gone or when she was sleeping and going through her personal belongings.

In her following video, she shared that now she is safe and ready to move out of her apartment. What do you think about this situation? Leave your thoughts in the comments down below!

Not that she’s lying of course but her parents never told her about the postcards? I would have thought they would tell her immediately so she could be careful

They could have thought it would just make her worried.

I didn't know at the time but figured out my old land lord oils go into my ex bf apt when we weren't there. I'd noticed a few things moved around. But figured my kitten at the time was playing around. But one day I decided to change out our locks because my ex bf lost a key. So I'd get two new ones w a new handset. I left the deadbolt because we locked that at night Well one day at like 11am I'm home an can see the stairs up to our place. I see him walking up them. I'm in my night clothes playing on the computer. I turn the sound off an it's dark so he can't see in an me inside as he passes up to the door. I hear him put his key in an start forcing on the door. Like he thinks it's stuck. He tries the deadbolt which I had locked an can unlock that. Now I'm scared he will break the door in. To get in? For what? Finally he relooks the deadbolt an leaves. I can see him trying to look in the window. He left. My kitten meanwhile was at my feet trembling. He must have hurt her

When we were out. Ladies please just change the locks or add one u can use as backup in case this happens. That old guy might have had a key to help the old tenant an never returned it. I hope they arrest him.

Some guy sneaking into my bedroom while I'm asleep is my worst nightmare. Literally - when I'm stressed out or running a temperature, that's my recurring night terror. Sometimes he's just standing there, but if it's a REALLY bad dream he violently rips the covers off me, and it feels so real. It's horrible. :(
