You can’t have a rational discussion with an irrational person.

I hope the police have some good advice. I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this.

Document. Document. Document! 

If she tries to speak to you again, if your phone has a recording device, use it! Do not engage, tell her sorry, matters are being dealt with through the police, and shut the door in her face. 

Sorry this situation is happening to you, irrational people are incredibly hard to deal with, and you should never feel un-safe in your own home. 

If management does not do anything about this, inform them you may have to contact legal councel to determine if this ongoing issue they have failed to deal with is indeed a lease-breaking event.

cautiously3optimistic:  you said it’s a condo building. Is your landlord an owner of the individual unit you live in or do you rent from the management company? If there is a private owner of your condo I would go directly to them and explain what is going on. I would also be clear that this neighbor is the reason you won’t be renewing your lease and furthermore, if they show the unit to prospective new tenants while you are home, you will be very honest and direct with them about the neighbor issues. 

An owner will have more leverage with the HOA and the management company than you as a renter will have.
