Some try physical intimidation, may even get violent
Some office bullies try physical intimidation to cow a person into submission. A small percentage may even become violent at some point. Most workplaces have some kind of policy on violence, and it's better to look it up and not need it than otherwise. Pretty much, the advice is to call security when physically threatened and keep the names of anyone present as a witness. In this day and age, I think that it's also a good idea for both men and women to learn some kind of physical self defense -- since if someone actually does try to get violent, it's better to know how to defend yourself than to have to wait for security to appear on the scene.
