Jenny maybe you shouldn't just threaten to call the cops maybe you should actually call them. It sounds like this kid needs to learn a lesson!

I agree, I'd actually go ahead and call them.

Wow, that's scary. I'd be calling the police too! Years ago, I really liked this guy that I worked with and gave him my number. The first time he called, he started asking me things like "What are you wearing?" OMG, he was SO not like that at work and it totally freaked me out. Back then I had an answering machine, so I started screening my calls. It was really creepy and he eventually did stop, but it's been so long ago, I can't remember what I did. I think I just ignored him at work or something. Finally he got the hint, though. Now I usually only give my cell phone number.

Didn't something like this happen once before? I read your post and was totally overcome with deja vu.

I think I'd try and talk to the parents first. I believe we're talking about teenagers and they can get obsessed with stuff. I would only call the cops as a last resort.

I tend to agree with qwerty...while it's not impossible that this person could pose some kind of threat, it's also possible that he's harmless and is just being obsessive as qwerty said. Having only recently been a teenager myself (I'm going to be 21 later this month) and knowing a lot of teenagers, they can be stubborn, persistent and, yes, obsessive - and sometimes they don't consider the consequences of their actions or think about how they come across to other people. So yes, I would recommend talking to his parents first as well, if you can.

I'd kick this guy's ass first, then I would call the police. Thats just what I would do. Send him a message that your family cant be f**ked with.

There was a boy in my sister's class named ID who called her 10 times in one day. The difference here is that this boy Lewis called her 25+ times yesterday. It was so ridiculous. He called this morning at 7:43am and it woke me up.

If this kid is so unstable that he can call a house over 25 times in one day, despite an adult telling him to stop, then I think he's dangerous. I don't care how old he is. If any stranger called my house that incessantly, you bet I'd call the cops. Who knows what he's capable of doing. He can just show up at your house. Didn't your sister meet him at a special camp?

I agree with Janice 100%. You never know what he may be capable of. Next time he calls your house, CALL THE COPS ASAP!!!

You make a good point Janice. I don't know what he might be capable of. Yes, she met him at a special camp. I'm not sure what his disability is.

I think it would be more effective if the adult telling him to stop were his parents. If he ignores his parents telling him to stop I would call the cops.

He's not a stranger though. Jenny's sister knows him.

Since they met at a special camp they probably live in different towns and he probably doesn't drive making it less likely he can show up at their house.

If they know his number I'd call his parents. If they don't know it they could try *69 after he calls and try and get it that way or they could ask him directly for it.

They may want to consider getting her a cell phone with restrictions on it so future "friends" can call her on that instead of on the house phone number and Jenny doesn't need to pick up the phone.

Jenn, I have been in a similar situation; my advice is, screen your telephone calls, allow the answering machine to pick up. I am just curious, does this person, leaves messages? if that is the case, then save them, to prove that he has been harassing you. Calling someone, regardless of their mental or intellectually situation is just ridiculous. I am sorry that you are going through this

He's a stranger to Jenny. He met her sister at camp they attended for five days. Jenny is an adult, and she's home alone. She has told him to stop calling, and has even threatened to call the police. He refuses, and now he's calling 25+ times a day. He could live an hour away or in the next town. People have ways of getting places. I wouldn't care what the circumstance was. If anyone, for any reason, was calling me constantly and refused to stop, I'd call the cops.
