Every time a woman cries wolf, it makes it that much harder for the real victims to be heard.

I'm especially surprised that this is coming from Arabian, since she is usually on the "don't waste taxpayer's money and the precious time of the police" bandwagon.

...and I do not find this remark surprising coming from Janus.

Absolutely she should contact the police if the behavior persists and if she or her sister feel threatened. Harassment, bullying, stalking is an offense. If the police find the matter trivial they will direct her to her family court lawyer.

I will post this again - A Handbook for Police and Crown Prosecutors on Criminal Harassment

Prohibited conduct

(2) The conduct mentioned in subsection (1) consists of

-repeatedly following from place to place the other person or anyone known to them;

-besetting or watching the dwelling-house, or place where the other person, or anyone known to them, resides, works, carries on business or happens to be; or
-engaging in threatening conduct directed at the other person or any member of their family.
