Customer Question

I had a brief '' argument'' with a fellow tennant where when it started I started walking away. She, the other tennant, began screming & swearing at me, even from the entrance while I was entering my apartment. I have a heart condition & it triggered two bad bouts of pain. A few days later, the landlord texted me complaining of what happened but taking her side. When I tried to explain, via text, he had no interest. He told me not to speak to another tennant directly but him (landlord) if there is an issue. He changed his last instructions from "call the police'' to talk directly to a tennant, so this hiss 3rd change in policy. I texted him a complaint about the tennant above me stomping & making my apartment shake, including my floor. He texted back critizing me for having issues w/ fellow tennants. The landlord told me also not to call the police anymore over "trivial issues''. The last time I called dispatch was for the fire alarm control pannel beeping & having a zone light on. His last text said "Any more complaints & there will be changes.'' Does he mean I can't complain or complaint against me? My bathroom ceiling still needs to be fixed, back porch light needs repair & one tennant said I knocked on her door when I was asleep in bed. I don't know what to do or what I should do. The texting argument put me in the er w/chest & arm pain, also other symptons related to my heart condition. My doctor said ''don't talk to him''. Can a landlord say ''don't call the police'' esp when they told me to call if the one accusing me of knocking is harrassing me. I can't afford to move How should I handle this?

What would you be complaining to the police about? What crime was committed?
