We only provide legal information at this website, but it appears that you need personal protection which may be purchased from a private security service. In the meantime file for an immediate eviction and allege that an emergency exists. Courts usually will cut the notice time down on something like that; however, it depends on the city that you are in and the local judge. At the very least though get professional protection, and that might be enough to solve the problem. I hope so. No one should have to do put up with what you have described here.
