Examples of stalking include:
- loitering nearby
- maintaining surveillance
- sending unwanted gifts or messages
Stalking may escalate to physical assault, sexual assault, and even murder. If two or more occasions of unwanted attention are directed repeatedly toward a specific individual causing fear or alarm you have the right to get support if this is happening to you. You don’t have to go through this alone.
For a fuller list of examples as well as advice on how to keep records and how to report if that’s what you want to do you can visit the website Action Scotland Against Stalking (ASSA).
We can help you, give you advice and/or advocate on your behalf with the police if you think you are being stalked. Please get in touch for further information.
