THE STUDENT WHO IS A VICTIM OF STALKING
Stalking is any behavior that would make a reasonable person feel threatened, intimidated, annoyed, or afraid. A stalker is much more likely to be someone the student knows than not. A stalker may start with small, annoying, persistent actions and progress to criminal behavior. Some example of stalking behavior are:
- trying to start or keep a relationship that the person does not want
- threatening the person or the safety of someone close to the person
- becoming physically aggressive with the person
- unwanted repeated calls, emails, or letters
- following the person
