Public Harassment:I was walking down a busy commercial street…
I was walking down a busy commercial street during the middle of the day. I did not know that someone was following me. Then he approached me and started asking my name and phone number. He commented on how I looked in yoga pants. I told him I wasn’t interested and continued to walk down the street. I crossed the street. He followed me and continued to ask me my name, etc. I loudly said I wasn’t interested.
I continued down the street and he continued to follow me. I repeatedly, loudly said I wasn’t interested. There were lots of people on the sidewalk but no one helped. I was getting close to my destination and I did not want him to follow me there. I went into a grocery store with the plan to approach the manager if this man continued to follow me. He followed me in. I very loudly said I wasn’t interested. Some customers started staring at us. He left the store. When I left he was no longer around.
