Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

Despite an ambulance and a victim compensation being notified I am not finding a police report.
Criminal Lawyer: Zoey_ JD, JustAnswer Criminal Law Mentor replied 4 months ago

You would just go to the police and report the crime. Let them know that it took you this long to find out the name of your assailant but that now you want to get assault charges pressed. Let them know as well that you got immediate medical attention, that there would be hospital records and that victim's compensation was notified.

The statute of limitations for a simple assault (misdemeanor assault) is 2 years in Georgia and it's 4 years for a felony. So regardless of the seriousness of your injuries at the time, you would still be in time to get this case underway.

I just clarified my queston and you referred my question.
Criminal Lawyer: Zoey_ JD, JustAnswer Criminal Law Mentor replied 3 months ago

Actually, you asked a very different question, which is why I referred it. On this question you were only asking how to report a crime and whether it was outside of the statute of limitations. I gave you a complete answer to this question.

If another lawyer believes he can give you a good answer to that question, he or she will pick it up and JustAnswer will send you an email.

Police would not always generate a report unless they performed some type of investigation where witnesses were questioned, evidence was gathered etc. So just because an ambulance responded does not necessarily mean that there will be a police report.
