File a report with law enforcement if you can. They should be able to give you information on stalking as a victim. Get witnesses and evidence ready to present in your petition for an injunction. Try to walk with friends or family and be careful.

In Pennsylvania, you can go to your county courthouse and file a PFA -- a court order that aims to protect victims of domestic violence. PFA means “Protection from Abuse.” It is commonly known as a protection order or restraining order. Filing a PFA will cost you nothing. In most Pennsylvania counties, you are entitled to a free lawyer who will represent you at the PFA hearing.
A PFA is a powerful tool that can (1) restrict an abuser from contacting his or her victim, (2) evict an abuser from a jointly occupied household, (3) award a victim temporary custody of minor children, (4) limit an abuser’s child visitation rights, (5) require an abuser to pay spousal support and child support, and (6) order an abuser to turn over all registered firearms to police. Violating a PFA can result in a six-month jail sentence and a $1000 fine.
Just to provide more information... A PFA is only available in certain conditions...mainly if it is between family members or spouses or individuals involved in a sexual relationship of some kind. If this is just a random guy stalking you..the police will need to do something about it... If you are not getting the action you need out of the police officers, ask for a supervisor. If the supervisor doesn't help, ask for the chief.
