This man I gave directions to about a month ago won't leave me alone. Every time I walk out of my house from the hours of 11am-1pm he always seems to be driving around there. And stops his car to try and talk to me. He tells me that hes been going up and down the road looking for me everyday. I told him to leave me alone and stop trying to find me everyday. I was able to get his number so that if i do go to the cops i have a way to track him. since then Ive only seen him once and he stopped his car but i ignored him and kept walking to the train. He knows where I live as he told me hes seen a camera outside my house...im afraid to go to the police because i don't want anybody finding out about this or him to get mad that i called the cops and then hurt me. what will the police do?
Your facts could constitute stalking or harassment. I cannot tell you if going to the police will get the guy mad. But not going is scaring you badly. Go to the cops. Tell them your facts and let them decide. The guy may have done this before and they may know the guy. Or they may just talk to the guy and explain that he is scaring you and back off.
I agree with Mr. Cheser. Not going to the police is a lot more likely to work out poorly and in more stress than going to the police.
I agree with both of my colleagues. This sounds like harassment. I would go to the cops and calmly explain the facts. They will advise you of the options and you can act accordingly.

I would just add that you should get this dude's license plate number before you go to the police. That way they can see who he is (or at least whos car he's driving).

You should definately go to the Police. I dont know if you live alone or what, but you are definately in a precarious position. Don't waite untill it is too late. This guy definately is not normal. His behavior is not the norm, You have told him to leave you alone and he has still persisted. This is the defination of stalking and/or harassment, specially since he is putting you in fear. Let the police handle it they are well trained for this type of incident.
