After Jennifer McLeggan claimed she was being harassed by her neighbours, a group of men stepped in and gave her overnight security.
According to Lucy Yang, the woman is a nurse and single mother who moved into her Valley Stream home three years ago and has been receiving threats.
“I feel like I’m terrorised. It’s a nightmare living next to him,” she told the media.
Black Enterprise reports that Micheal McEneaney, 82, his 57-year-old son John and his girlfriend have been harassing the woman.

Some of the intimidation included throwing faeces and dead animals into her garden, spitting over the boundary and shining a torch on her home.
It should be noted that Jennifer was fined for having faeces in her yard until she installed a camera system to capture the culprit, which lead to a $5,000 judgment in her favour.
After a long history of harassment, the single mother had to put out a long message on her front door showing the incidents she had to put up with in the past.
The woman said that she was very much touched by the help, adding that the men who came to help her were going through the pandemic just like everyone else.
A man named Herron was the first person who offered to sit in front of her house until some of his friends became a part of the security team.
