They are literally cornered.

Stomper Jen and her family live in a corner residential unit on their floor at Block 221A Sumang Lane in Punggol.

Her home is surrounded by clutter left in the common area by the next-door neighbour.

"Many pots of plants, dangerous sharp objects, bicycles and falling shelves were placed in front our unit and also blocking the pathway," said the Stomper.

"We tried talking to our neighbour regarding the concerns, which ended up with him asking us to make a complaint to the authorities, believing that no one can enforce anything.

"Almost every day, he drinks, shouts and slams his door, cursing us."

The Stomper shared a video of the man outside her gate on Aug 18.

"Call the police lah. My area – I put my plants," he said and followed with a few vulgarities.

The Stomper said: "He has been harassing us since we moved here in April last year.

"He tried to get close to us and told us weird stuff about him and his wife, touching me and my husband while he was talking to us. This was followed by forcing our two-year-old son to address him as 'grandpa'.

"He always comes knocking at our door and requesting to come in our house many times. We did not acknowledge this so we tried to avoid him as much as possible. Due to our avoidance, he started acting crazy and shouting at us when our son cried.

"In December, we stopped our son from running to him when he shouted his name one day. He then told my son right in front of us that he would call the police to catch his mother for doing so.

"Later in February, he took some items that we temporarily placed outside our door to clear the ants in our unit. We approached him in a nice way to retrieve our items, but he said that everything in the common area belonged to everyone.

"He started shouting and asking us for a fight till we had to call the police."

The Stomper shared a letter from the police regarding the incident, which said: "After careful consideration of the available facts and circumstances of the case and in consultation with the Attorney-General's Chambers, the police have decided not to take further action against the accused for the offence of dishonest misappropriation of property.

"All investigations and enquiries into the matter would cease and the case will be closed."

The Stomper added that she had also reported the situation to the town council to no avail.

Stomp has contacted Pasir Ris-Punggol Town Council for more info.

Then on Aug 28 at 10.43am, the neighbour was caught on camera urinating outside the Stomper's home.

"He came out of his unit and urinated in the common corridor. Our CCTV at the door captured the whole thing," said the Stomper, who shared the video.

After peeing, he can be seen pouring water on the floor to wash away the urine and can be heard saying something about calling the police.

In response to a Stomp query, the police confirmed that a report was lodged.
