An interesting piece on Mail Online. Extracts:
A third of stalking victims are men, according to new police figures.
The latest data has shown that 41 out of 46 police forces across the UK dealt with 1,800 stalking cases against men between 2014 and 2017.
But it is believed that in reality the figure is much higher as around 85 per cent of stalking victims do not report the incident to the police.
According to the Crime Survey for England and Wales, more than 1.2million people were stalked in the year ending March 2016, with 759,000 being women while the other 450,000 were men…
Sharon Stratton, from the College of Policing, told the BBC: ‘I understand stalking is under-reported generally, and men report less than women.
‘We must ensure that we encourage people to come forward.’
