Door kicked in across the hall

Last evening as I was coming home I noticed that the door to the apartment across the hall from me has been forcibly broken down. The wood is all torn away from the deadbolt, like it was violently kicked in.


Who would have done this? Not the building management--they have a master key. Not the police--they could get a key from management. Unless it were an emergency, I don't think the police enter like that. And there wasn't police tape or anything, so that narrows it down quite a bit.

The most likely explanation is that someone who isn't a legal tenant but is nevertheless living in that apartment broke in. The keys to the building have "Do Not Copy" stamped into them, so I imagine there aren't a lot of copies floating around.

Very very frightening.
