Stalking is a repeated and insistent criminal harassment and terrorising of a person against their will. The victims concerned are affected adversely in their lifestyle and often find the behaviour threatening.
Offences may be to:

  • lie in wait
  • watch you
  • follow you around
  • track you down
  • harass you with telephone calls, SMS or E-mails, escalating even to telephone terror
  • send letters and presents as so-called “proofs of love“
The majority of offenders are male while most of the victims are female. Frequently, domestic violence is a vantage point for stalking. Hinweis: PDF-Logo Stalking Flyer der Stadt Köln (294 kb)
