A female resident of West Village C reported that a male student who lives down the hall had been visiting in her apartment when he became disorderly. She believed he may have been on drugs, and asked him to leave. Once he left, he kept going back to the door and knocking, but no one would let him in. He became frustrated and began to urinate on the door. She then called NUPD. Officers arrived to find him still urinating on the door. He was told to stop and step away, but was uncooperative.
