If you believe the individual is stalking you, you may wish to discuss the matter with law enforcement. Stalking is a class 4 felony and the individual may be charged with a crime if his conduct is determined to be stalking. You can read the stalking statute at the link below.

A restraining order can prohibit such conduct, as well as other contact. You may wish to pursue such an order. An individual may file for a restraining order at the local Clerk of Court's Office, though it's often prudent to retain an attorney to assist you with the matter. You can read about restraining orders at the link below.
