What should i do!

History i used to date a guy named chad. Well turns out he is now a convicted child molester and rapesit. He now is a fellon. But he never was caught until a mom caught him a few years ago trying to have sex with her daughter. He tried with me and my cousin.
Well he is out of jail now and has somehow got my cousins number. He told her where he works. Trying to find her she has been ignoring him.
Well last night i went to the gas station to put gas in my van and buy smokes for my husband. Now i go here all the time and i love this gas station i even gone at the same time before. Well i walk in, and right in front of me is chad. I was not sure but my body reacted so it had to have been. He looked at me and i kept praying dont let him come near me. So i told the cashier to hurry and she got kind of suspious so i had to lie. I then ran out and went to my van in hopes chad didnt see my van and j drove off.
I called my cousin told her i saw him face to face but was not sure it was him. Well as we were talking and stuff he texted her telling her he saw someone from long ago(me) but couldnt remember my name. So right after that i knew thats who i saw.

Now i am scared that he saw my van and is going find me. I know i wi call cops right then, but i dont know if i should call cops or talk to our city cop and explain to him who chad is and where i saw him so they can watch him, or if i should put my house on watch.

      I would call the cops and ask if there is anything they can do since you babysit. I know there are a lot of states that they can get thrown back in jail for getting within so close to a daycare center or school.

        She is not talking to him. She has ignored his texts and calls since he got her number from somwhere. We have no clue on how he got her number other than an old friend from a bar. He knows some people we do, espically her.
        He texted her and told her he saw me.

          If he hasn't done anything even if you call the police they cannot do anything. The best thing is just to watch. Even if he comes to your home they most generally will not do anything the first time (because he's not committing a crime) but tell him I leave and if he comes back it is trespassing, but then if he came back they could do something.
          I would do exactly what you did before and if you are uncomfortable, leave and go somewhere else.

            The other side of the fence is that he's done his time (whether or not anyone thinks it was enough time is irrelevant). Calling the cops and stirring up anything is infringing on his rights and freedoms as a citizen. Good or bad, you find what you are looking for. My advice is to go about your life and forget that he exists. I think that all states have laws that make sure sexual offenders register where they live. So there's no reason to cause an uproar. That being said, if he makes any contact with you at all, of course you should let law enforcement know.
