This is awful!
Here's the whole story (below):
Sorry, Leighton Meester! We've found crazier roomies than your psycho character in The Roommate!!
Over in Salt Lake City, poor 41-year-old Thomas Chapman offered a home of six (above) a remodeled bathroom in exchange for rent.
But little did he know he was about to endure Saw 1-7 all in one night!!
After one of the roommates got all paranoid and suspected Thomas of coordinating random street attacks on him, they conspired against him! Around 9pm Saturday night, the torture began.
Once the stripped him down and locked on handcuffs, they made him suffer seven wretched hours of brutality. From stapling his lips together to cutting him with a knife head-to-toe, this guy got the crap kicked out of him! He was even struck with his own keyboard!!
"I'm getting beat up with my laptop, keyboards, boards, sticks, having knives put in my throat, getting kicked in the ribs, getting kicked in the head, basically getting assaulted."
Finally, he lied and "agreed" to go find the man he "thought" was behind the paranoid roommate's street nightmares.
Tempted to take matters into his own hands, he knew he better go to a relative's house and call the police ASAP!!! When the cops arrived, he was still in the cuffs and underwear.
With a warrant, the police arrested all six roommates, finding the tools used to torture him in a bucket of cleaning solution in the basement.
SO. FREAKING. CRAZY!!!
We're just glad Chapman was able to make it out of there alive!!
Please, be CAREFUL when you're looking for new digs. And as a general precaution, it's probably not best to move in with six middle-aged people who exhibit ANY sign of drama!!
