Help me identify this movie?

I've had this vague memory of a 1970s-80s crime movie in the back of my brain. Can you help identify it?

It's a cop drama, and one of the characters that the movie follows is a male who is some kind of stalker. The one scene that shocked my young mind when I saw it is of this character somehow getting locked outside a car in an isolated spot at night. Inside the car is a woman, who is his victim and who owns the car. She somehow tricked him to go outside, and locked him out, and so he goes absolutely crazy, stomping on the windshield, trying to kick it in. The scene I remember is taken from the vantage point of the woman in the car. Scared me quite a bit. I think that's the climax of the film and the cops show up pretty soon thereafter.
One of the two other scenes from this movie (I think) are of the guy starting to tail a victim by striding up to her station wagon on some isolated road during the day, and plopping himself on her bumper and hitching a ride. I remember thinking that was a really weird thing to do.
And the final scene is of two cop-like characters walking through a busy night-market, bazaar type scene, chatting. (I realize almost every cop movie has a scene like this.)
Do these scenes ring a bell for anyone? Was I just imagining this movie, or has my memory pieced together scenes from different films? Just idly curious. Thanks!
