That was happening ALOT in my building during Covid and Xmas. The Superintendent had what they call “J-Bars” installed where it makes it impossible to manipulate the door latch. It obviously doesn’t prevent it completely, but it stopped it from happening much less frequent. He’s great! Definitely knows how to properly maintain his apartment buildings.

Obviously, he did it before. The neighborhood will be served better when this moron is locked in & weld the door shut.
