All That You Should Know About Stalking

1 out of every 6 women has experienced stalking in some way or the other. In addition to

this scary stat, it is also noted that persons aged 18-24 years experience the highest rate of

stalking. To be honest, the 1 out of 6 is just an official figure. If we take into account of the

weeks on and off. As per the Texas Attorney General, “A stalking victim feels a reasonable

fear of bodily injury or death to self or to a family or household member or damage to

property. Stalking can be perpetrated by the stalker or by someone acting on her/his
