In many cases, people are very aware of a stalker’s behaviors but they may feel they have little recourse.
“Fundamentally, stalking is a pattern of behaviors directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to fear,” said Laura Halfmann, a social worker with Legal Services of Eastern Missouri. “That includes repeated and unwanted attention; harassment or contact by phone, mail, email; a perpetrator going to a victim’s school, home or work; property damage; tracking by technology or posting about the person online.”
