My roommate locked my key inside the room amd left for town, when i called her she said "she bought her key with her money". I'm asthmatic so I needed the key urgently.

Next moment I had a knife in my hand and chased her with it so she can give me the key, I felt like I was gonna die.  So what is goinh to happen to me? Her mother called me twice and threatened me.

Hi there,

I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.

You have basically assaulted your room mate, which is a criminal offense! If she reports the matter to SAPS, you might be arrested and charged with assault!

Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required payment, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make payments for their questions.
