There is a series of small apartment complexes situated near the factories that run along parts of Wellington Street. These formally housed many of the factory workers, most of which migrated to the area after the factories were put up. Now the complexes serves as low income housing for a growing population of the areas poor, though this has not always been the case. For a period of time, one of the apartment complexes was temporarily shut down after a series of residents reported waking up to a figure in their room.
The first sighting was in early 1977. The encounter reportedly occurred in the person's bedroom, which had tall walls, one window at the far corner of the room, and was sparsely decorated. The resident awoke suddenly to a sound like someone wheezing, seeming to come from one area of the room and then another. They looked around the room, but saw nothing at first.
The area was darkened by the drawn shades, but as their eyes adjusted to the light filtering through the bottom of the window, they could distinctly make out a form. The figure was reported as being of medium height, but outside of that the person could not add in any definable features. They were facing the window, though with the shades drawn it couldn't have seen anything. The resident reached for their phone while its back was still turned to them. When they turned back the figure was gone, no trace of its presence to be found. A personal investigation further found all the windows and the front door still locked and undisturbed.
At first the reports were dismissed by both the local police and many of the people involved, as no real evidence of this being could be found. Many people continued to report this strange occurrences, and over the course of a couple of weeks there were no less than seven reports of this strange being in the apartments.
One of the worst of these sightings occurred approximately two weeks after the initial report. This occurred in one of the apartments on the second floor. The residence housed a father and their young daughter, who moved shortly after a recently resolved divorce. The man reported waking up to the sound of his daughter screaming. He came into the room, finding his daughter in her bed, her arms pinned, with the strange thing hunched over her. The moment he entered the darkened room, the thing turned and looked at him. Thus far his description of the thing is the most complete.
