False arrest

I have been arrested twice for allegation of harassment, but the actual man was harassing me.

I have had to move house, sell my car and change my mobile number - but yet the police have failed to help me and when he makes a complaint about me - false allegations - they arrest me, (he keeps getting me arrested as I have been exposed to his secret life).

I don't know where to turn for help as I may be charged with harassment this time. He has connections in the police force.....what can I do?

Please help me out with advice.

      but i am the one who has been arrested, and not him,
      i have changed house, sold car, change my numbers, but they still arrested me ( i have been exposed to his life which i shouldnt be and this is the only way he can control me )

    Sorry to hear this. My rapist has alleged harassment against me twice, the first being a set-up by him and his brother. I have had some positive redress from a complaint to the police standards authority and suggest you do the same. I believe you. This is classic abuser tactics. Be strong.
