I live in an apt. My neighbors upstairs are CONSTANTLY fighting. They have a 2 year old son together. I've actually called the cops on them numerous times because I could hear the woman screaming for help and her son screaming....
Now here is the part that I never noticed... She is NEVER hurt. No bruises... no scratches... no blood. But the man is constantly covered in scratches, bruises, and blood. Earlier I could hear them arguing again... so I opened my front door and he came downstairs with a fat lip and chipped tooth. I asked if everything was okay and he just started sobbing and telling my his life story...
I guess they are from Africa, and have only been in the US for about 3 years. She seems to have a mental issue of some sort because she just screams and screams over everything... and this guy seems sooo p*ssy whipped. He was telling me how he hangs around for the child because he knows how the mom is favored in divorce cases. So not only does the woman scream at him (in front of their son), she also hits him all the time. She laughs about it and practically begs for him to hit her back.
I tried telling him to call the cops on her when she hits him... then he can leave her and have police reports stating that she is abusive. But, he doesnt want to do that because in his culture the men are men. He doesnt want other men to know that he is being abused. I told him to come to my apt with his son the next time it happens... but I dont think he will. I told him to let her see him coming to my apt, then I am a witness to her shennanigans. But I dont think he will...
My issue/question is this... The next time that happens, should I call the cops? My main concern is that child. *sigh* IDK what to do for this poor guy.
The cops have been called at lease a dozen times, half of the time by my I'm sure (I was calling more because of the noise though).
He told me earlier that he lies to the cops and says that she didnt hit him... even though he was standing there with a fat, bloody lip. No complaining witness... no crime. He doesnt want to admit that he is being abused.Answer Question
