Cases like this are typically what we call he said/she said cases and what actually happened will be resolved in court at trial if the case gets that far. Under facts like this where both parties have engaged in physical acts against the other, each party generally will claim the other is the aggressor and that anything they did, they did only in self-defense. Questions of fact are what criminal cases are designed to reveal. The trier of the facts, judge or jury, will determine what did happen at the close of all of the evidence.
