San Diego mom thinks she's the victim of "community stalking"
Story by Brian Shlonsky
A San Diego mother said she was being targeted for weeks, with people she doesn’t know coming in her house when she’s not there.
Facika Tafara thinks she may be the victim of a bizarre practice called gang stalking or community stalking.
“It’s like an alternate reality, really,” Tafara said. “It’s spooky, and it’s my understanding that if this is actually what it is, it can go on for years.”
Community or gang stalking is an eerie practice that takes aim at your psyche to make you almost feel like you’re going crazy.
In Tafara’s case, she said she would notice strange things out of place in her house when she would get home from work, such as her windows being opened, dresser drawers opened, and she said she even found a camera inside the bedroom of her 11-year-old son.
“It’s so creepy, I had a bolt put on the door and I’m having my son sleep in here with me,” she said.
Tafara said she contacted police, and detectives visited her University Heights home, but there isn’t a lot that they can do.
“And they kind of said, well, it’s kind of like, if it happens again call us, but there’s not much we can do because we don’t know who it is, you don’t have a face,” Tafara said.
She told 10News that she plans to beef up security at her home and has even looked into hiring a private investigator.
