Assault is defined as an intentional act committed by one person, which creates a fear or apprehension of imminent physical harm in another person. It is the threat of bodily harm combined with the ability to inflict such harm. Threatening words alone are insufficient to be classified as assault. It takes an action which indicates an ability to carry out the threat, in order for it to be considered assault.
Depending on the degree of assault, and whether or not a weapon was used to commit the assault, will determine the extent of the penalties that could be imposed by the court. Aggravated assaults are more serious criminal offenses, and depending on the circumstances involved, assault can be classified as a misdemeanor or felony.
