Is she being charged with assault? If she isn't you can ask the Police why. Have you given a statement yet to the Police? What do you want to happen to her?
You will need to follow up and visit the local police and make a complaint as usually they would have taken a statement on the night. This will mean she gets charged with assault and faces the consequences. You will be able to give a victim impact statement and sometimes this means she may have to pay some compensation. An offence like this is likely to be almost jail however, especially if she has a record
