WAUWATOSA - "I was so scared. I was freaking out. I didn't know what to do."

Lea Brusha had a bag of groceries in her hands as she walked through Hart Park last week when she noticed something strange - a man who had her in his sights.

"Sure enough, first I walked through the grass and he followed me through the grass," said Brusha. "Then I walked on the walkway, he followed me on the walkway."

She forged ahead, trying to get to the bridge that would get her home -- the guy right behind her.

"I kept thinking in my head, too, I have to drop this bag of groceries," Brusha said. "I was going to drop the bag of groceries, but I just ran."

She got home and got on the phone to police. The guy got away. It gets worse. An hour after she was chased, another woman reported being followed -- same park, same panic. Now, Brusha wants every woman to be aware so this guy will be found.

"It's really an uneasy feeling," she said. "I haven't even really been able to sleep since."

Brusha describes the man as in his early 20s, olive complexion, black hair, unshaven, with possibly an Indian accent.

If you have any information, call police.
