What are the circumstances of the battery?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He punched me in the street twice. Neighbor gave a statement as she saw it happen. 2nd assault was in the house in front of my 11 & 5 yr old. He had me down on the floor in a choke hold. My son gave an interviewed statement. 999 call was made by my son as I couldn't phone being pinned down. Police say that the 999 call was very distressing and evidence of shouting & banging. Pictures of bruising the day after was done. I am involved with Domestic Abuse association as my children were at risk and for my safety I had to report this incident & give evidence.

Are you on the UK? What were your injuries? Bruises wouldn't disappear the day after if this were a full power punch. Bearing mind that most men can break a person's jaw with one punch.
