I'll preface this by saying I am not generally a paranoid person.
Yesterday at about 5:30pm I left home to catch the bus. As I was walking out my front gate a man was driving past and slowed down and stared at me as I walked out. I instantly got the creeps big time (in my gut). He drove on straight and I turned right (I live on a corner). A minute later I heard a slow car behind me and it was him again. He was driving SLOWLY and staring at me intently. My alarm bells started going off hard, he kept driving past but at the same slow pace. I got my notepad and pen out to get his licence plates if I saw him again which is something I've never even thought of doing before.
He continued mega slowly and stopped for a while at the top of the street until I was almost there, then turned left. I did the same when I got to the end (now on a busy main road). As I got to the first cross street I saw that he was very slowly driving up it back towards the main road. I wrote down his plates. He then came to a complete stop in the middle of the road a bit before the intersection. A couple of cars had to drive around him to get to the intersection themselves. This whole time he is staring intently at me. I waited to see what he was doing and eventually crossed the street in front of him as he was stopped and staring. He then of course turned left and slowly drove past me, staring. At this point I kind of raised my shoulders and pulled a "wtf" face. He drove on and I crossed to the other side of the road but continued walking in the same direction. When I passed the next cross st on the left he was there, he pulled out and slowed right down (mind you this is peak hour on a very busy main road) and stared. So he was in the right lane of the left hand side of the road and I was walking in the same direction but on the right hand side of the road. At this point I threw my arms up and yelled "what the ****!". He kept staring but drove off and I didn't see him again.
The whole time he didn't say anything, change his face from creepy stare or make any gestures. My heart was racing the whole time and I was shaking by the end of it. I've had loads of men stare at me from cars before (who hasn't) and I've never felt even remotely shaken by it. It was definitely not coincidental that I saw him so many times. I would normally just shake it off but he saw me coming out of my house so I feel paranoid.
DP thinks I should call the police but I don't know? Am I being paranoid? Is a man following and staring at you from a car really something I could report?
Like I said I am not usually paranoid but my gut was telling me something wasn't right from the first time I saw him. What should I do?
