I am sorry to hear this; was this reported to law enforcement?

no i did not call the police

OK; thank you; They will still take a report especially if there were witnesses. The reason this is important is because if there is a criminal conviction the court can take "judicial notice" of that conviction, meaning the plaintiff in a civil suit suing for monetary damages need to prove the event happened-the court will assume it did.

The victim can sue for medical bills, pain and suffering, even punitive damages designed to punish the defendant.

The victim can also seek a protective order whereby the offender cannot contact the victim and must remain a certain distance away. There are advocates that will usually assist with this at the clerk's office.
