Stalking and Harassment
If you are experiencing unwanted behaviour from one or more people, on a persistent basis and are feeling threatened by this, you may be experiencing stalking and/or harassment.
Talking can often be misinterpreted and misunderstood to be romantic and complimentary to its victims, but stalking is about fixation and obsession. It is a serious crime and can destroy the live of its victims.
The abuser may be someone you know or a stranger. Abusers will often use multiple and differing methods to cause fear to their victims. Their type of behaviour could include any of the following:
- Regularly sending flowers or gifts
- Making unwanted or malicious communication (texts, emails, phone calls)
- Damaging property
- Physical assault
- Sexual assault
If you are experiencing stalking, please do not suffer in silence. Call the police on 999 in an emergency or 101.
