Assault is defined as an attempt or threat of violence upon another person, coupled with the apparent or actual ability to carry out the attempt or threat. To look at it from another perspective, assault may be defined as some act that is likely to result in injury to another person, thus putting that person in fear for their safety. Assault does not require that the alleged victim was actually injured. It is therefore easier for false or exaggerated assault charges to be made against a person. It may also be more difficult for the prosecuting attorney to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that a defendant actually committed assault.
