Q: If somone continues to touch my dog without my permission and I ask them not to what would you recommend I do?

A man at the dog park who I don't know and don't believe is completely there has been harassing other peoples dogs. He continues to touch peoples dogs without their permission and will chase after them. More than one person has asked him to stop is there anything we can do? Call the cops? Record and file charges? If the cops did show up is there any repercussions for his actions? He has on numerous occasions just laughed and continued to pet someone's dog.
