How to Avoid an Attack If You're Being Followed or Watched

32874 ratings | 1710595 views
This may happen to anybody: you're walking home and suddenly notice that somebody is following you. Your natural reaction – having a panic attack – won’t help, but there are several ways how to protect yourself from being attacked or robbed. Remember, you should stay alert at all times. Any time you're going home, taking a dog for a walk, strolling the streets on your own, stay focused and observant. Glance around and behind yourself every half a minute or so. Try to notice everything out of the ordinary and analyze the situation. And if your instinct or reason tells you that somebody is stalking you, it's time for some actions. In case you’re sure you’re being followed, try to lose them. Cross the street as if you need to do this. If you're lucky, they may even lose you in a crowd, around a building, or behind cars. Check who is following you - confront the danger head-on. What is more, you immediately alert the person who is after you that you're well aware that they are on your tail. Sometimes, it's enough to cause a person to stop. Call your friends or, if you’re in immediate danger, call the police. If your cell phone's battery is dead or you can't use it, enter any establishment on your way, inform them that you're being followed, and ask them to call the police. If you decide to run away, go to areas full of people: first of all, your stalker may lose you among other people; secondly, they will unlikely hurt you or rob in front of others. If the criminal gets ahold of you, be cooperative, listen to the criminal, don't talk, and follow their instructions. If a person threatens you with a knife or a gun, such cooperation will lower the chances that they will harm you. If you understand that you're being attacked, use everything you have at hand to fight off the criminal. Keys, a heavy bag, fingers, fists, a book; you can use anything to protect yourself. #stalker #beingwatched #stranger Music: Butchers - Silent Partner https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS First of all, make sure that a stranger is following you 1:05 Pretend to be unaware 1:30 Cross the street 1:50 Turn around and look at your stalker 2:30 Contact friends and relatives 3:00 Call the police 3:36 Scream, yell and make as much noise as possible 4:14 Run away 4:33 Don't head for your home 5:34 If the criminal gets ahold of you 6:14 SUMMARY -Casually stop, pretending to be tying a shoelace or searching for something in your bag or pocket. Scan people behind your back memorizing some details of their appearance. -Make some stops, look in store windows, take a break to admire a pretty car choosing the dark ones to see the stalker’s reflexion without looking right at him. -To make the task more difficult for the person following you, cross the street or turn the corner. -Don't be embarrassed to turn around and check who is following you. -If you've made sure that you can't get rid of the stalker, text or call those of your friends or family members who are likely to be nearby. -If you feel that you're in immediate danger, and there're no people around, call emergency services. -Even if you simply shout "help me" or "fire," the criminal may get scared away. If not, try to get away yourself. -Don't feel embarrassed to start running. However, by no means move down any alleyways, corridors, or streets with only a couple of ways in and out; you can get trapped there. -Don't go home unless you're one hundred percent sure that nobody is following you. -If the criminal gets ahold of you, don't hesitate and give them all the money and other valuables you have with you. If you’re being attacked, kick the assailant in the groin region, poke their eyes, scratch, bite, strike them in the face with the open hand; your life can depend on that.

2-3 years ago my family decided to visit my sister since she's studying out of state. they booked a room in a hotel where we will be sleeping. we arrived there like maybe around noon or so and as i was walking up the stairs to our room, a grandma was walking in front of me. idk, maybe she sensed something off with me that she kept turning around to check me out. obviously, i knew she thought that i might be a bad person, so i just kinda smirk but then she turned around and saw me smirking 😂 i just smiled at her and she smiled back but i know she was scared or something. probably because i walk so close behind her but then started walking slowly. and believe me when i say she literally jumped up the stairs to the next level and continue climbing up the stairs while looking at me 😂 lucky for her that my room is on level 2 and hers probably higher. lol

Turn around and look at your stalker 2:30 Should be mentioned when doing this step, if a person is following you they will most likely stutter or come to a complete stop due to shock unless they are used to it, have had specialized training in tailing, or are different in some mental capacity (as in have a mental disorder of some kind that affects emotional responses). This happens because most stalkers subconsciously consider themselves as hunters and are often surprised when their prey confronts them. Watch their eyes if you can, they will usually widen. If none of these things happen you can play it off as looking at someone else if you are in a crowd, or if you are not in a crowd just say something like, "Sorry did you say something?" and you'll usually be fine.

I've been harass on the street, a guy told me to give all my money to him, and my phone too, I refused and then he starts coming very close to me. My friend was also there but he runs to go for help. When comes close to me I looked behind and see a car coming, I knock on the window when the car was near me and he stop, he told me why did I knock in the window, I told him "help me, this guy tries to get all my money and the phone. Then the guy in the car told him "What do you want from him" and then I was just running and running, searching for my friend. So guys if u have this kind of problems scream for help. Now I'm so scared to leave the house, I'm so scared to take the same path, this happens to me when I finished school. I'm so scared that he will wait me there, because I finish the school at the same hour. (sorry for my bad English)

I've had three separate occasions where I was in danger, one man came back to my work place several days asking for me and would hang around for hours after closing waiting for me, another man followed me when I was walking through a crowd and kept on offering me a ride and to come back to his vehicle with him, and another was a man reaching out trying to grab at me from his vehicle at a grocery parking lot after dark...

If you are ever being pulled don’t yell help because people will always think someone else will help you. It’s better to yell ‘FIRE’ or ‘FIGHT’ or something people will have to see the believe, this will get people’s attention much better and everyone will look.

For anyone who may want to know how to get away from people following you on the road and how to tell if you are being followed: pay attention to how long they are behind you, the longer they are their the more likely they are following you. Check how they use their turn signals, if they only turn them on after you do, or don't use them at all, they are more likely to be following you. Try not using them for a bit. Drive a little odd. Speed up and slow down a couple times. They'll probably pass you if their not trying to follow you. Go to a gas station or something. If they go too they were probably following you. If they do something you can book it out of their as fast as possible. I've had people try to follow me home twice. Both times I passed my house and went right to a gas station. The first time, he came into the gas station parked a few spots away and then, to look like he was there on purpose, he got out and walked in. As he walked past us he looked right in our car at us. The second time I got in the gas station and he went into the store across the street and stared back waiting for me to come out. Someone parked behind him to get hey loaded into the back of their truck so he couldn't get out in time to fallow me. I am forever grateful to that random person. She saved me without even knowing or trying.

If someone is following you then I heard that if say there is an area that’s like a circle or square then keep going around and around and around I heard that sometimes they will loose interest And another this I heard is if the person has say no pockets or anywhere to keep a hidden weapon turn around and then talk to your self saying something like god dang it I forgot to buy milk or anything like that then walk right past him and he will wait a second so that he can stay a distance behind you and then speedish walk till you walk into a big crowd then once he’s stopped following you call someone family friend someone to come get you and if you remember what they looked like then tell your friends and family to keep aware

If it comes down to it knee them in their nuts smack both ears and elbow between their shoulderblades that should take them down long enough to get away screaming. I had to do that before.

I did have this happen once when visiting St. Louis, it was late and I couldn't shake them, and my battery was dead. He grabbed me and shoved me against a wall outside a club, i clawed at his eyes and punched his throat, he bent over coughing and I took off running. Unfortunately the club had closed but I made it to my car and took off. One of the scariest situations of my life. I was 21.

Lily Goedeke (10 days ago)
If your in a crowd and you think someone if following you, you should tell other people so they might help you. Dont like scream it or anything too big that might frighten other people and make them run away until its just you, and your stalker.
Lily Goedeke (10 days ago)
Also, if you think the stalker wants something from you. Stop, drop all your valuables you have, and get away. It may not seem fair but if your cornered you will most likely be more scared and the stalker may harm you just to get your phone you could have given him/her without him/her getting too close to you. Remember, dont panic.

What if when you are walking home your neighbour comes home to that means he/she is following you home 🤯
Teralcraft (13 days ago)
Make them think you are armed, allude that you are talking to someone, Move with confidence and a purpose, Do as little out of the ordinary as possible. lead them to a populated area, change direction whenever you do not have a walk sign. Call them out loudly in front of an establishment or crowd. The surrounding area will immediately turn their attention towards what is going on. stay away from walls.
