Stalking

Stalking is a series of unwanted actions towards another person intended to control, threaten, harass or frighten.  Stalking is serious, often violent, and can escalate over time.  The majority of stalking occurs in the context of an abusive relationship or when a relationship has ended, although, some survivors are stalked by acquaintances or strangers.

Stalking tactics can include:

  • Following
  • Coming to your home or work
  • Repeated phone calls or e-mails
  • Property damage
  • Sending unwanted gifts
  • Monitoring phone or computer use
  • Using technology to track you
  • Threats
  • Using social networking sites
  • Any other actions that control or scare you
