My name is***** have over 16 years experience in the law. Should you like to chat on the phone I am happy to for a nominal cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested I am happy to give you more details.

What you are describing is a crime. That is, it is a crime to threaten another with violence. The victim of this assault can report the threat to law enforcement and request they prosecute. They can also report this to the employer and request the perpetrator be held accountable.

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

Does she call the sheriff out to the job site or should she go into the local sheriff department? Also, she has verbally reported this to the forman/supervisors and the other person is still back at work. Should she file a written report to the head of the company? Or her supervisor, or who? Will probably have to call you tomorrow when I have a few more answers to questions I have to ask.
