Potentially dangerous situation no laughing matter

I just wanted the community to know that on the evening of Thursday, Aug. 29, I was meeting with friends at [a local bar] and was followed out to my car by a man whom I did not know. As I walked to my car he kept asking me what I was doing and where I was going. I simply ignored him.

As I started [the engine], he had reached my car door and frightened me, so I drove off and preceded to go back to get my friends at [the bar]. My friend went in to speak with the bartender/waiter. As she came out she pointed the man out, and the bartender/waiter laughed at her.

I really do not think that this is a laughing matter, even if they knew him as a regular. It is not funny to follow a woman alone out to her car. I'm just a concerned citizen and would hope this will not happen to anyone else.

    I’m wondering why the name of the restaurant/bar was redacted.
