I am a lawyer in CT.  Assault is an intentional act that creates an apprehension of fear of bodily harm where it appeared to the victim that the actor had the present ability to carry out that harm.  I do not have sufficient facts to give you an answer becasue i do not know the circumstances of the assault. What happened?  Fact conduct constituted the assault?  Perhaps you can write more so i can help.
