Types of Anti-Social Behaviour
:: ASB - The Types: Index ::
We're talking physical assaults here, even though you may feel subject to a mental assault if you're dealing with an anti-social situation. It is most definitely illegal and an offence if a person is assaulted or even threatened with such an assault.
Hostile acts cause a fear of attack from most individuals and this is assault. Assault and 'battery' (this is the actual force of a physical assault) is a term you've probably heard.
Those that think it's clever to assault someone and where it leads to ABH (Actual Bodily Harm) can find themselves in prison for up to 5 years. Ask your local police if you need more help around this subject.
