How to use "Encroach" in context?

When one person encroaches on another's territory, they are infringing on that person's right to be free from someone else's physical presence. This act can be seen as a form of aggression, as it allows one person to take control of another and force them to behave in a way they do not wish to. Encroachment can take a number of different forms, from simply stepping too close to another person to actually encroaching onto their property. In each case, the result is the same- the person encroached upon loses their right to be free from others, and must now deal with the consequences.
