“Safety Concern Question”

“Dear PoPville,

There is a young male who walks around the neighborhood on a regular basis, usually asking for money every now and then and sometimes carries a black backpack. I only used to see him walk around at night, where he has approached me a few times before – once even walking alongside me as I was walking home alone. I have noticed him around a lot more now after an interaction I had with him last week.

I have seen him everyday outside near my apartment building and this has started to make me feel pretty uncomfortable to the point where I feel constantly on guard walking to and from home alone, especially as a woman. This has started to feel like a form of stalking and I am very concerned.

I wanted to see if anyone has maybe had any encounters with this person and what resources may be out there to help?
