LEWISBORO, N.Y. Lewisboro police are investigating a claim made by a housekeeper who says a former client is harassing her.
The woman told police last week she used to clean the home of a man who lived in the Oakridge housing development when she first moved to the area a year ago. She said the man acted strange and would inquire about her personnel life as he followed her around the house. She told police she cleaned the home three times before quitting in April 2011.
The woman told police approximately three months ago the man began to call her, stating he was upset she was no longer cleaning his house. She also reported the man had begun driving slowly past her home and would stare at her when she was at the shopping center. On May 29, it appeared he followed her to the grocery store, so she went someplace else to shop, she told police.
Police advised the woman to call each time something happens to create a paper trail and noted that nothing illegal has happened yet. The woman told police she wants a file started in case things begin to escalate.
