On July 19, a woman reported that a man sat near her on the bus and repeatedly attempted to speak with her. According to the report, the woman tried to ignore the man, but did give him her name when he asked for it. The woman said the man began to repeat her name incessantly before asking for her phone number, which she declined to give to him.
