I am a 22 year old female at the time of this incident I was about 16 or 17 years old. Because of what happened I now NEVER walk anywhere by myself after dark.
I had decided to sneak out to meet up with a friend but neither of us had a car so we were going to walk and meet up half way between our houses. The halfway point was about a 40 minute walk. We ended up meeting up at around midnight and the walk there went fine, no issues. We hung out for a while and ended up losing track of time it was now about 3am. I had to get home before my parents woke up for work or risk getting caught. We said our goodbyes and I started on my long walk back home.
Since it was three in the morning it was basically a ghost town not a person in sight. I hadn’t seen even a single car drive past so I figured I would have a nice walk home. I was wrong.
About ten minutes into my walk I hear a car coming up behind me nothing to alarming about that. As the car passed me they slammed on their breaks then cut off all their lights. Immediate red flag. I saw the car turn down the next street ahead I knew I would have to pass them to get home. Instead I ran into a nearby parking lot and hid in the bushes and pulled out my phone to call my sister to at the very least let someone know where I was at and what was happening and call 911 if needed. I unlock my phone and of course 1% FUCK. Then my phone died. As soon as this happened I started to panic. I waited there for what seemed like forever and decided to start towards home again.
I started waking again and passed the street they turned on and didn’t see any cars I started to relax until I walked a little bit further and saw the very same car parked in the Burger King parking lot. As soon as they saw me they started to back out of the parking lot and headed towards me. I bolted across to the other side of the street. Instead of staying on the same road I ducked into a neighborhood that would let me go back on to the main road but closer to my house. I got back onto the main road and thought I was in the clear then sure enough the creep was driving towards me and as soon as he passed me he mad a u-turn so that way he can follow me again driving slow enough to be directly behind me. Luckily another car was coming up behind him so he was forced to speed up. I saw him up ahead going to turn around AGAIN. I took this opportunity to lay down in the grass between someone’s fence and the sidewalk just out of sight so any passing cars could not see me. After he passed again I got up and started sprinting towards a neighborhood that would lead out to another main road that my house is off of.
I made it to the main road and was so close to my house. But again I see the fucking car ! He passed me and started turning around. I ran across the street and through this field and hopped my neighbors fence cut across my court and ran inside. I had never been so happy to be home. This guy fallowed me for my entire walk home I’m not sure what would have happened if I had just kept walking and ignored all the warning signs but I know his intentions were not good. It was by far the scariest thing to ever happen to me. Creep that fallowed me for 40 fucking minutes lets never meet.
