Stephan van Hulst wrote:Yes. A threat is a threat, and you could not have known whether it would escalate. Some angry people get even more angry when you *don't* engage them. Just get on your phone as soon as they start banging on your window and make sure to note the licence plate. Often that will be enough to scare off the assailant, but even so you will want to make a report of it.
