Good evening! I'm sorry to hear about the situation!

An individual may typically only use the level of force that's necessary to protect himself/herself from harm.
Using additional force, particularly deadly force, when doing so isnot necessary can result in criminal charges.

If an individual is constantly be harassed by another, one remedy is to petition for a restraining order.
Once such an order is established, law enforcement may be more likely to respond favorably to calls.
Further, if law enforcement appears to be shirking its responsibilities, a citizen may speak to the prosecutor's office or supervisors at the local law enforcement agency, as either may be able to assist.
