Harassment is a violation and therefore must be witnessed by the police. I don't see a civil case worth pursuing. Your emotional distress is not actionable without treatment.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and now handle criminal defense and personal injury/civil rights cases. Feel free to check out my web site and contact me at (212) 577-9797 or via email at Eric@RothsteinLawNY.com. I was named to the Super Lawyers list as one of the top attorneys in New York for 2012. No more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by Super Lawyers. The above answer is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
Let the police and the court handle this.
As far as next time, trey and avoid this person if you possibly can.
You can also seek an order of protection so this person is supposed to stay away from you.
What caused all this?
