We reached out this week to Amanda Grady Sexton of the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence to ask: What should people do if they’re being stalked or harassed in this way?
“It’s important to recognize stalking is a very serious crime,” she said. “We’ve seen many instances where stalking behavior has escalated and has lethal consequences. We hear often that here are more and more neighborhood-type disputes that people don’t take as seriously as, for instance a stranger stalker. (Tensions) are really heightened in society right now ... and when we see people escalating their behaviors, words and actions, these are indicators they need to be taken seriously.
“Please call our centers,” Grady Sexton added. “We have advocates who are trained in the dynamics of stalking. You don’t need to be in direct crisis to call.”
