BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A stalker tormented a Bed-Stuy woman for half a year on her morning commutes and threatened to hurt her when she confronted him about the abuse, according to a police spokeswoman.
 
The stalking began in December of 2016, when the man started to follow the 27-year-old victim from her home train station at the Kingston/Throop C stop to a station at 34th Street near her workplace, according to police.
 
For months the man followed her for the duration of her commute, trying to talk to her, until late April when the man became more aggressive, at one point muttering “B----, I have arrived,” police said. 
 

When she confronted the man just after 6 am on June 7 on the Manhattan-bound platform at Kingston/Throop, the stalker became enraged, threatening to hurt her in language so vile that a police spokeswoman declined to repeat it.
 
“He used really ugly words,” the spokeswoman said.
 
The suspect is described as being between 37 and 43, standing about 5-feet-11-inches tall and weighing about 250 pounds, and he was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt, black jeans, a gray hat, and tan boots, police said.
