As i was leaving my hime with my children, my 1st floor neighbors beat me. I called the police and made a police report the day of the incident, they refused to open the door when the police were knocking. I am scared for my self and my children, the couple, boyfriend and girlfriend, both attacked me in front of my 2 children. Can I get a restraining order against them? Can they be forced to move?
Whether the neighbors can be forced to move with be a decision for your landlord. As for the attack, you need to continue to contact the police for answers. Speak to the watch commander or chief if you are not getting any answers. A no contact order, while possible. will not be much good if your neighbor violates it. Clearly there is more to this story than presented here.
