What can landlords do about tenant causing issues?

In my building, there is an elderly lady, who will constantly yell at others and hold doors shut on tenants and visitors. She spends most of her days in the Lonby with her wireless phone so she can conduct all her busisness. I wonder what can be done, if I inform the landlord, or if this is more criminal (Cause a disturbance, mischief, etc) and should notify the police. Thanks.

First step would be to notify the Landlord. He/she will investigate the issue and decide how to proceed. Depending on the precise nature of the incidents, the landlord could take action through the landlord and tenant board. The police is also an option if the incidents are criminal in nature.
