That would be "er tritt mich"

Think of it in terms of to stand in for someone or the even more literal to step in for sb. That's basically how treten is meant here. Similar: betreten ~ to step into, to enter

Cf. also treten and to tread. Presumably Germanic cognates.

"Er tritt mich" or "Er verpasst mir einen Tritt", I think.
