Suzy Lamplugh Trust defines stalking as 'A pattern of fixated and obsessive behaviour which is repeated, persistent, intrusive and causes fear of violence or engenders alarm and distress in the victim.’ Research suggests that 1 in 2 domestic stalkers, if they make a threat, will act on it.

Stalking can consist of different behaviours including unwanted gifts or communication; physical intimidation at work or home; vandalising your property; physical or sexual assault.
