Oh, hell no. I would have gone OFF. No kidding, the police would have been called on his ass.

Oh my god. I am so angry on your behalf. That was ****ed up. Seriously? I probably would have told him to keep it and explain it to the cops. What ****ing *******.

Everyone's different, and you did what you thought was best. I always half jokingly tell my friends that before I cry I will get pissed off. This is when you think all sorts of shoulda coulda wouldas.

I'm really glad you've talked to the police and that there's a CPS that can help you further. I don't want to sound paranoid, but the wallet returning incident really has my hair standing on end. It just seems really fishy that he'd make such a big deal out of returning your wallet to your apartment, especially since he only wanted a relatively small amount of money. That coupled with saying he'd maybe "check back in on you sometime" really freaks me out.

The CPS guy hasn't called me back yet, but I called him after I filed the report, around 3, so I'm not surprised.

I signed up for a self defense class Oct 12. That's the soonest one that the city offers. I'll find a fee-based one sooner, I'm sure, and wind up canceling this free one [early enough so someone else can attend in my place]. But I thought I would at least hold my place, just in case.

When I walked to and from my apartment today, I did it in daylight, with the pepper spray in my hand, actually in the "open" position, with my finger on the trigger. Keys out. Scanning constantly. Until I get more information and training, that's going to be my MO in the zone between my car and my apartment.

I feel like my apartment is safe. It was already safe, and I've made it safer. The one final thing I need to add: I am setting up a trip wire tonight at the doorway leading to hall to my bedroom.

Yep, I was going to mention that too. Guess the butt munch didn't know extortion was illegal...

Don't let your guard down. The whole thing stinks. My thinking is that he either knows who did take your wallet or he is a pyscho who happened to have found your wallet and wanted to see if you still live there. Be wary about coming home in the evenings.

Don't mean to scare you. Maybe I've watched too many Cold Case files or something but this doesn't sound right.

Wild~Hair, I'm so sorry for all the crap you've been going through. That guy who returned the wallet sounds so creepy. That sends up so many red flags. I'm also wondering if he's in cahoots with the original thief. I hope you don't have any more trouble. I think you've gotten good advice here, so more ((((hugs))) from me.
Just checking in to see how you're doing today. I hope things were quiet and peaceful last night, and that you were able to get a good night's sleep. Take care of yourself!

Hey all, thanks for the concern. I really appreciate it!

I didn't sleep well at all, but I'm fine and it was quiet here all night. I'm going to go stay with my mom today and tonight. My concentration isn't great and I have lots of work to do. This is where I would normally go work in a coffee shop, but … well, yeah. Plus I need a good night's sleep after two really bad ones.

I need more information from the CPS guy. I don't know why, but that seems like that's the next step.

Glad you'll be someplace you feel safe.
I read this yesterday but just getting a chance to respond today. I'm so sorry this all happened - how awful and scary. I'm glad you have a safe place to go. I'll be thinking good thoughts for you.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.
I'm so sorry this happened to you.
