Hi, so My alleged victim says they did not press charges and did not write a statement to the police only told story but because damage, the police claimed could not ignore so made a report. Now, a detective called me last week, I did not return call. He approached me at my job today, and ask when I was going to come talk to him? I said I did not do anything, why should I? He said ok well I am giving you until next Tuesday to come talk to me and tell me your side of the story. I need a statement. I find it strange that he did not arrest me on the spot or did not force me to leave and come to the police station. I know I have right to stay silent, and I have expressed I didn't do anything. My next approach is to tell him that I am not doing a statement because truth be told I am not doing one. I have strong reason to believe that he's hindered and needs a statement so that he can incriminate and request warrant. I don't think it would be in a judge best interest to issue a warrant to arrest when there is no victim statement, no witness statement, no 911 call and the victim did not even call the police. What should be next course and what should I prepare for?
