If someone harasses you they can also be charged with harassment. The harassing behaviour must occur on at least two occasions, but they can be separated by a considerable period of time. The harasser does not have to intend to cause harassment in order to commit the offence, so long as a reasonable person would feel harassed by the actions. For more information, including what to do if you experience harassment, see Galop’s guide Harassment.
