If you are an Apple user, blocking people on iOS is pretty much a breeze as well.

Go to Contacts >> Settings >> Phone >> Call Blocking & Identification >> Block Contact

If you have already upgraded to iOS 10, then you have to add that number to your contact list before blocking. Just name him “Stalker 1”, it’s not that difficult.
