The prevalence of stalking has grown in recent years. Stalking was initially criminalized in California in 1990, and shortly thereafter every other state followed suit. Yet still today, stalking remains a significant problem.
In general, stalking describes unwanted attention by individuals (and sometimes groups of people) to others. Harassment and stalking are closely related and their behaviors similar. Individuals characterized as stalkers may have a mistaken belief that the other person loves them, or have a desire to help the other person. Stalking consists of a series of actions which in themselves can be legal, such as calling on the phone, sending gifts, or sending emails.
Stalkers may use threats and violence to frighten their victims. They may engage in vandalism and property damage. They may use physical attacks that are mostly meant to frighten. Less common are sexual assaults or physical attacks that leave serious physical injuries.
