Feeling terrible going to work

Hi guys, I was not too sure where my problem would fit, so I added it to the other MH section.
Since I came back from New Years holiday my feeling at work had dramatically changed.
I had been subjected to targeted anti social behaviour and threats against me. Even though now it's ebbed down i still feel uncomfortable at work.
Maybe I should explain a bit.
I work as a scheme manager at a retirement home/ independent living. Lone working. I'm the only staff on site. From Monday to Friday 9-5.
After I came back from annual leave during the new year one of my tenants just lost it. He started to tell stories. First against cares from Africa, then he started to target a tenant who came from India. He is a proper racist, sexist everything 'ist if you asked me.
He started threatening the Indian tenant. I had to report this and now he is targeting me. My company is filing court papers to have him evicted but he is still living there, where I work alone.
He had threatened me two time. Called me all sort of names, including a Nazi (I am German that's why)
I ha e the feeling that I don't get much support. I had a colleague with me for two days before my last annual leave which was good. But now I came back from my holidays and just feel terrible at work.
I don want to get up in the morning. It feels like a sickness but then later on, especially when I'm back home I feel much better.
I have now also been informed that my wages have been frozen, that means that I would not even get a payrise and might if I would have to stay endure a pay reduction.
I just feel so alone and just left a this place.

Firstly if you are feeling threatened at work you can call the police who would be there within minutes. He will at some point be evicted so hang in there for the job. The fact that you don't want to get up in the morning tells me you are suffering from depression. If you are not happy in your job, then you can look for another one. Once you get another job to go to, you can hand in your notice at this current one. But until you have another job to go to try to stay strong. stiff upper lip, grin and bear it so to speak. Very soon you will be out of there and doing something you really enjoy.

You should try human resources too. This is not cool. You can also consult a lawyer. And go to your nearest police station and speak to an officer about your concerns. They will be able to tell you what actions you should take next. Good luck.
