insanity, the sheriff's offenders registry, "forcible touching"
Another neighbor asks the wife last month if he is ...? My wife assures her he is seemingly harmless.
Last week he is in the dumpster behind his apartment, seemingly sitting there and eating a pizza.
Yesterday we are walking our dog, and he accosts us and begins talking about taxes. Later I hear neighbors talking about the "stalker". He comes up to people and stares at them. He hangs around where one neighbor works, scaring the heck out of her. Apparently, he was outside the window of another neighbor for some time. When she asked what he was doing, he said her plants were dead. I realize I know who this stalker is, the same person who creeps us out, and with all these people's stories, you go from one odd piece of the pie to a whole gigantic pie with a lot of crazy stories.
OK, a little oddness, a small town has plenty of it. I, for example, have a pink robot on my tee shirt today.
I am walking down the street just now and see this individual 100 feet ahead of me, step in front of a woman. She steps around him and he grabs her backside and squeezes it as she tries to pass him. She whips around and speaks sharply to him, he disappears into his apartment. I catch up to her and ask if she is calling the police, I will witness, and she says NO, not this time, she warned him, but had never seen him before, who is this guy? (a quick look shows he is not on our sheriff's county offender registry)
I am so furious I could spit.
On the weekend somebody forcibly touched 2-3 women on campus over the course of 2-3 hours before raping a woman. None of these women had seen the person before. I am not saying, of course, that this neighborhood eccentric had anything to do with those events, but I am trying to say that the person who thinks it OK to grab somebody, a stranger no less, especially in that way, may or may not escalate in the coming days.
IN any case, I do NOT like to be near people, I do NOT like to be touched and he has been a problem in my space as well. I do not know how people think they can touch other people, people they do not know, people who have not invited that person closer, but next time I see this person I am firmly and furiously telling him he is to never come near US again, and exactly why, and that the police will be called.
***update later Wednesday: somebody else filed a complaint about this person after these events with the state police and also the postal police (because of activity also on postal property) and I have been asked to talk to the police this afternoon about what I have seen.
*** further update: the troopers took a report from another woman this afternoon (I was not called upon in the end) about his actions towards her: the woman I saw is from another country and does not want to file anything, but because of this, others have stepped forward and called the troopers with their own incidents...and the harrasser has been warned by the troopers....of course, he is still walking in circles around the center of the village and when I was walking the dog just now he was following me at a distance, which is not unusual.....
