Stalked by a Perverted Old Man

When I was 18, I was stalked on my way to school by an old man older than my parents (about 60ish). He offered me a ride to school while scanning my body with his eyes from top to bottom repeatedly. "Hey little girl, I live around here too, let me give you a ride to school." He said enthusiastically with a perverted smile on his face. I was startled by him then but kept my composure and firmly declined him by saying "No." That day when I was home, I told my parents and elder brother about that man. My brother escorted me to the bus stop next morning. On my way home that day, that old man appeared again driving alongside as I walked and honked twice loudly. "Hi there, we've met. I also live around here..." I just kept walking with a stern look and he gave up and drove off. When I reached home, I told my brother again who went out to check for the white car that the person was driving. He saw that bald skinny old man with his car parked 100m away from our house. The old man saw my brother and drove off. My brother escorted me to school and home the following week. We were gonna call the cops if that man appeared again. The area I lived in was an affluent neighborhood. Police cars patrol the area regularly. I'm repulsed by the old man's actions. Luckily he didn't harm me physically or abduct me. What do you feel about my ordeal?

I am glad he eventually stopped stalking you! I would have been scared and would probably bring mace with me on my walks home along with talk on the phone and call someone when times like that are happening.

Yes, I'm THANKFUL (not to him but to God) that he stopped. I've heard in the USA it'd be dangerous and some ladies carry a taser.

@Ladypeace Back in the days - I think it was much safer. Now I read so many scary things on the news. I used to carry mace when I went to school late or walked home from school when I was younger. When my home was "attempted" robbery - I was so scared and traumatized, I brought a bat in my car with me and slept with one underneath my bed. Lol. But now, I hardly go anywhere by myself. And when I do - I make sure I know all the exits, have my phone in hand ~ my boyfriend has the track my iPhone and I let him know where I am, lol. And I always make sure in my bag has some sort of make shift weapon if I need it to be lol.

I was scared then really. I can't imagine what would have happened if he caught me in an isolated spot. That's why I always make a point to walk in places where there's people.

It's a good thing you told your family about it or this old perverted man could have done what he wants with you. that's definitely dangerous, that old man was desperate but it would have been better if he was arrested, he could have found new victms.

Yeah, he was a shady figure On retrospect I should have jotted down his license number and reported him to the authorities.

That's an awful thing to happen to you at that age. It was lucky you had someone able to escort you for a while. Did you ever see him again?

Yes, this was one of my most disturbing encounters. No I've never seen him again. I got all nervous for a couple of months after the encounter - worried that he might pop up again.

Glad you were okay and had your brother to escort you. Someone should have reported him to the police. We tell our children never to talk to strangers.

Yeah and I hope my experience cautions others to be careful about walking alone.

That man clearly has no good intentions. If his purpose was only to give you a ride, he should not have drove off when he saw your brother. One more, no one scans a person from top to bottom if the purpose is only to give a ride.

He's more than triple my age and I'm very sure he meant malice. I was thoroughly creeped out by him. After the encounter I became more anxious just walking in my neighborhood for the first couple of months. I'm glad it stopped there.

That's crazy and, why every girl should have a cell phone with her and, know never to get in a car with anyone. Glad nothing else happened.

Nothing happened because I was walking in broad daylight with cars of residents passing by along the walkways leading to my house. This was not my only incident. Due to the encounters I've had, I never walk in isolated places. Also I carry a pepper spray.
