You can request a restraining order. There is a good possibility that you would be granted one based on these facts.
You would be asking on the child's behalf. He may qualify for a Domestic Violence restraining order because there is a familial relationship. If that's the case the standard for getting a restraining order is lower, preponderance of the evidence (think 51% vs. 49%, you only have to be slightly more credible). Otherwise you would have to ask for a civil harassment restraining order, where the standard is "clear and convincing," (More than preponderance, less than beyond reasonable doubt, think more like 75%). You would need to show more substantial evidence that it qualifies as harassment, it happens on a continuous basis, and it is causing real and actual harm. You may want to consult or obtain an attorney to help you.
Your son can can fill out, file with the court, and have the aunt personally served (timely and properly) with a Request For Civil Harassment Restraining Order(s) [assuming that your son and the aunt do not have a close relationship] (and fill out and file with the court a Proof of Personal Service).
The burden of proof for a civil harassment restraining order is clear and convincing evidence. The burden of proof would be on your son.
