    The woman said she was waiting for a family member on the corner when she noticed a man staring at her in a strange manner.

    Police observed the man following the woman northbound on North Cherry Avenue. Both the man and woman were seen crossing the street twice.

    Police approached the man from behind and tapped his shoulder. The officer noted that the man had a phone to his ear but there was not apparent conversation taking place and he could not hear the man saying anything into the phone. The man snapped the phone shut when he saw the police. He told the officer he was on his way home and denied following the woman.
