At this point a restraining order is in order. Unfortunately. The fact of the matter is, an eviction is the first course of action in a situation such as this. And typically, once occupants are evicted they leave for good and that ends the matter. They do not come back and trespass. I don't know what if any threatening behavior has occurred, however, in a case when an eviction is ignored the proper legal remedy is to then pursue is the more extreme measure of obtaining a restraining order.

The law for obtaining such an order varies from jurisdiction-to-jurisdiction. Here is as link to a site that you may find to be of help:  http://www.lasc.org/court_managed_prog/LPOR/filing_steps.asp
