This behavior is harassment and it is criminal in nature. It also has the earmarks of a hate crime. You could go to your building management. If they are unable or unwilling to get involved in your dispute, then you can report this as a crime to the police, let them know that you are fearful for your safety and the building has done nothing. Tell the police that you want this person charged and that you're in need of a restraining order so that he cannot threaten or harass you any further.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
