Any person who pursues another with intent to intimidate that person, commits a stalking offence.
Stalking occurs when it can be proved that the stalker intended to intimidate you. If no intent can be proved, then it is called intimidation.
If the person stalking you causes you apprehension or fear, physical or mental harm, if they prevent you from doing something that you are legally entitled to do, or if they compel you to do something illegal, then they are stalking you.
If you believe that you are being stalked, it is important to report the incident to police.
