Stalking

Stalking

While stalking may be perpetrated by strangers or acquaintances, stalking is most often committed against women by former or current partners. Any allegation of stalking should be taken very seriously as it is synonymous with increased risk of serious harm or murder. (Stalking was a feature in 40% of those domestic murders reviewed by the Metropolitan Police and has also been especially identified as a shared feature of murders where there have not been previously recorded incidents of violence).
