What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Oregon
I wrote a very detailed post that just disappeared so I'm doing the short version now.
I live in apt complex. Had ongoing noise issues with downstairs neighbor. Management won't do much. They tell me to stop coming to them and call police instead..so I have. She plays her music after 10 pm and I cannot sleep. It happened again last night. I called police and she got pissed and slammed the door hard after he spoke to her.
This morning, in what I believe is retaliation, she first played her music again very loud for about 20 minutes and then left. Later, she comes home and I am sitting at home with my preschool-aged daughter (I"m a single mom..so it is just us.) I hear water splattering outside and at first I think it is on the sidewalk. I then realize it is hitting my porch and front door. I walk out and the water has stopped spraying but my porch is saturated. All my stuff I had stacked there for back-to-school is ruined (my daughter's special books she had received from her new teacher and other items..plus expensive shoes I had removed briefly before heading out again. I leaned over railing and could see my neighbor holding a water hose which was still running. I know it was her . Had to have been. My porch is well-covered and very private so it would take some effort to spray it down. It could not have happened "on accident" very easily. I took a few pics of the wet ground of porch but not much else showed up in the photos. I do have all the wet stuff, obviously. But my word against hers I guess, right?
What are my options besides the obvious of doing nothing. Is it worth filing a report with police? What type of crime, if any, would this be considered? I'm concerned about it escalating should I need to call police about noise issues again...but I'm also worried that if I don't file, I won't have record of this in the future.
