Roseanna Roseannadanna was right. If it's not one thing, it's another. Struggled to work through TTC slowdowns and diversions—one of them caused by what the TTC called an “incident” at my destination subway station and many more caused by yesterday's torrential rains and power outages. Got to my building and there were hundreds of people—and six police cars— outside.

“Fire alarm?” I asked one waiting person.

“Apparently some suspicious character has entered our building,” she said. She’d been waiting five minutes. After another ten minutes, the police let us in the building and I took the elevator up to the 10th floor. My co-worker was already there. She hadn’t heard about the excitement.

I had just finished recounting the story when our doorbell rang. We have a camera outside our door that gives a good view of the entire hallway. Monitors on our desk switch on the view when the doorbell rings, so I looked up to see a shrouded figure run to the fire alarm and pull it.

We called the security desk and told them that the suspect is on our floor, they tell the police, who rush up and corner her/him outside our office door.

We still didn't know why the person was being chased. The building super came to visit us after the police nailed her and told us that she had pulled a knife on someone in the subway station and when chased, ran into our building. I’m not too happy that the police let us in the building without knowing whether the suspect had exited. Literally, if I had been one minute later, I would have come off the elevator face-to-face with her.

Scary sh*t!

Thanks, guys!

Yeah, Meta, yesterday was interesting in Toronto. My power came back on at 2:24 a.m. Ask me how I know. OK, I'll tell you! I woke up to hear a garbled voice from downstairs. Immediately I thought about the recent news reports of multiple break-ins in my neck of the city. A few seconds later, the TV cable box clock came back on. I now know what I heard was my house alarm struggling to come back on, but the scare was enough to keep me awake the rest of the night. Then I come to work to this! Crap, I've had enough today.

Re: security

Our office door used to be open all the time until about 10 years ago, while our visiting auditor was alone in the office, a thief came in and stole a laptop computer right from underneath her nose. Now we have a doorbell that's attached to a monitor. We can see and speak with anyone who rings the doorbell before releasing the lock on the door. Thank God!

Whoa! That is scary. I guess the police were a bit distracted by all the activity?

Glad you're OK.

I don't know, but ya gotta wonder why they'd let people in the building knowing a wild woman was on the loose. She was crouched outside my door when the police got her, evading the security camera.

So are we! My co-worker and I have stopped shaking now, but we did go to lunch and knock back a glass of wine. LOL.

There's been no mention on the news. I assume this is being treated like a transit suicide: kept under wraps to discourage copycats.

Heard that the knife-wielding woman is mentally ill. Apparently she attacked someone in the subway because she thought the person was "after" her. Sad. But still dangerous.

How scary! I'm glad you're all right!

(I was confused, at first, wondering, "Trying to conceive? On the way to work? How? Why?" Took me a minute to figure out what TTC was, in this context )
