Man screaming and going through trash in the middle of the night?

Last night I was awoken in the middle of the night by a man constantly screaming for about 10 minutes and walking down an alley near my apartment. Does anyone else hear these individuals? It's very unsettling. This morning my friend suggested it might be a coyote but these were definitely screams and not howls.

What should I do if this happens again? Is it wise to call the police on such a thing or is it best to just close my windows and ignore it?

  • Are you guys on the west side of Wolcott? I'm on the east side and my bedroom's on the alley and I didn't hear anything. How upsetting. I'm glad you called 911 and got him some help.

  • It was on the East side of Wolcott. The alley is the one right next to the LA Fitness on Lawrence, so not directly on Wolcott.

    Having battled with food inspectors in the past (not in a restaurant setting ) I found that they were very unrealistic in their reports .
