I lived in an apartment a few years ago. 4 units upstairs, 4 units downstairs. I lived upstairs, and the apartment below me was vacant. I kept hearing footsteps through the apartment, and I knew I shouldn’t have. Nobody was downstairs. I asked someone to come over and listen, just to see if I was crazy. Maybe I’m just hearing other apartments since it’s empty downstairs, and everything is echoing.
Wrong. I kept hearing the footsteps. This went on for a solid hour. Finally I called the landlord and the police. Apparently someone had broken in through the windows downstairs, and was walking back and forth through the apartment with a knife. Fucking horrifying. Via
