The National Institute of Justice says one in every 12 women and one in every 20 men will be stalked in their lifetimes.Some stalkers make phone calls, send messages, or deliver "gifts." Some follow their victims home, vandalize property, make threats, or kill pets. Some stalkers even attempt rape, kidnapping, or murder. And some succeed. Being the target of an obsessed person is a frightening experience. But it isn't necessary to live in fear.
