What is assault?

Assault is defined as the attempt or threat of bodily harm to another person through the use of force or violence. Whether or not this attempt is successful or the threat is carried out, an individual may face assault charges. Assault with a dangerous weapon or with the intent of causing death or serious bodily harm may constitute a more serious offense of aggravated assault, resulting in enhanced penalties. Committing assault and intentionally inflicting serious bodily harm is another form of aggravated assault.
