Chester County stalking victim speaks out

WEST GOSHEN TWP., Pa. - January 17, 2014

The victim, who did not want to be identified, spoke to Action News on Friday.

"I was very scared, just very scared and then when I got off Trooper Road, I thought 'If I can get to that Wawa, I can get to where there are other people,'" said the victim.

Police say Scott Rosenberg stalked and harassed the victim during a snowy early morning commute on January 3rd.

The victim says it began when Rosenberg, a complete stranger, followed her very closely into the parking lot of a Wawa in West Goshen Township.

He apologized inside the store for his driving and insisted on paying for her coffee. The victim says he then offered his phone number and propositioned her.

"He said, 'Can we meet up later?' I said 'Sorry I'm married. [He said] 'Well if you're into open relationships, my girlfriend and I do this all the time," she said.

Shocked, the victim left, continuing on Route 202. Rosenberg allegedly followed her closely for 20 miles even on side roads.

The victim turned onto Trooper Road in Lower Providence to head to a 24 hour Wawa for safety. That's when the suspect allegedly rear ended her vehicle.

After that, the woman says she memorized Rosenberg's license plate, sped away and called 911.

Police say the car is registered to Rosenberg's identical twin but they believe Scott is responsible.

So far he has denied stalking the victim although police have surveillance video from both Wawa stores.

"If this isn't the first time, I certainly hope more victims come forward," said Captain Greg Stone, West Goshen Township Police.

On Friday, a woman, identified as Rosenberg's girlfriend, answered the door at the couple's Phoenixville address.

"I ain't got nothing to say," she said.

Rosenberg was slapped with misdemeanor charges which means he only received a summons. However he will have to appear in court in the coming weeks.

Anyone with additional information, or knowledge of similar incidents, is urged to call West Goshen Police at (610) 696-7400.
