If someone is making you feel distressed, humiliated or threatened then this could be harassment.

The person or people harassing you could be someone you know, a neighbour, someone from your local community or a complete stranger.

Harassment cannot be a single incident. You must have experienced at least two incidents by the same person for it to be classed as a harassment.
