The complainant made a purchase and then walked out of the store with an unknown male walking out behind him. The complainant stated that he got into his car and drove off and a few minutes later, the same male that followed him out of the Stripes pulled up next to his vehicle and asked him for directions to the ship channel. The complainant stated that he pulled over to the side of the road at the 4200 block of Broad Street and exited his vehicle in order to give the male directions.
