Stalking is the unwanted pursuit of another person. It's not a one-time event but a pattern of behavior meant to cause harm or distress. The vast majority of stalking cases involve domestic partners, estranged spouses, or other romantic interests of some kind. Law enforcement pressing criminal charges for stalking has been on the rise in Rochester, New York in recent years. It can be a serious offense.
The general elements of stalking can include following someone or communicating with someone in a manner that causes that person to feel threatened. Stalking can be accomplished by following someone by foot, in a car, or by somehow regularly being present at places where the victim is also present. Stalking also includes tracking another person using technology such as GPS.
Constantly calling, e-mailing, or texting another person after that person has asked you to stop is another form of stalking. In addition, putting someone's job, business, or career at risk by showing up at that person's place of employment or communicating with that person at work is a form of stalking.
