hostigar, perseguir, molestar, acosar , etc


Explanation:
Cualquiera de las acepciones son correctas, en mi opinión.

ACOSAR es, quizás, la más concreta.

"hostigar, perseguir, molestar, acosar (stalk) otros individuos.."

Acosar


Explanation:
Pareja acosadora o ex-pareja.

El abusador podría controlar a dónde va, sus actividades diarias, para demostrarle (a ella) que no puede esconderle nada.

In this case I would translate it directly as "acosador", as it is one of the characteristics of violent, insecure, obsessive people.

HTH :-)
