Question: When you have someone on Facebook making threats to you about a service you did for them and they didn't like it now they want to threaten you and go to places you're at to hurt you

Answer:

If the person filing the order, plaintiff, does not have a family or a romantic or sexual relationship with the person they are filing against, the plaintiff may file a petition requesting an injunction against harassment if the other person has committed a series of acts of harassment against the plaintiff.

There are several different types of harassment under Arizona Law. Criminal harassment is defined under A.R.S. § 13-2921 and includes the following.

A person commits criminal harassment if they intentionally, or with the knowledge that they are bothering someone do one of the following:

1. Anonymously or otherwise contacts, communicates or causes a communication with another person by verbal, electronic, mechanical, telegraphic, telephonic or written means in a manner that harasses.

2. Continues to follow another person in or about a public place for no legitimate purpose after being asked to desist.

3. Repeatedly commits an act or acts that harass another person.

4. Surveils or causes another person to surveil a person for no legitimate purpose.

5. On more than one occasion makes a false report to a law enforcement, credit or social service agency.

6. Interferes with the delivery of any public or regulated utility to a person
