Criminal Injury Case Examples

Attacked by a bus stop

I was on my way home close to a bus stop. I was approached by two young men. One of them asked where I was from and where I was going. At the same time they tried to reach into my pocket for my mobile phone and wallet.

When I stopped them one of them approached me from behind and started punching me. I felt severe pain in my mouth and fell to the pavement.

There was a second attempt to take my wallet. I started shouting and they ran away.

I realised my front teeth were gone. I called the police and was taken to A&E by ambulance.

Sexually abused by an elder brother

During the course of a few months when I was around 9 or 10 years old, I was sexually abused by my elder brother. I kept this to myself and told my mother when I was around 13 or 14 years old.

I had aggression problems when anything involved my brother and I would become angry over the slightest thing. I felt it was impossible for me to express how I felt or what I was trying to say.

I continued to have conflict with my brother and bottled up everything. This has impacted on my life.

Sexually assaulted in a bar

I was in a bar and walked up the stairs to the toilets. I was with a male friend at the time and noticed there was someone behind us. The man was walking closely behind me and touched me. I turned around and he told me I owed him a drink. I ignored him and continued walking to the Ladies toilets.

I went into a cubicle at the end but the door did not have a lock. As I was sat down the door opened. I shut it immediately and pulled my clothes back on. At that point the man who spoke to me on the stairs pushed the door open again and entered the cubicle. He pushed me against the wall and proceeded to put his hands inside my trousers. I pushed him away with some force and was able to escape.

I ran to find my friend to tell him what had happened. A third party overheard our conversation and ran downstairs to the bar area. He saw my attacker and was able to detain him with the assistance of the door staff who then called the police.

Hurt after breaking up a fight

Whilst waiting for a lift home outside a takeaway a couple walked by. The man became abusive and got involved in a fight with my brother who was there at the time.

I attempted to break up the fight. The couple left and we went back into the takeaway.

We left the takeaway to go meet our lift and the couple was on the opposite side of the street. The man became abusive again but we ignored him and carried on walking.

As we crossed the street we noticed a group of men coming towards us. We were both attacked by the group. I was knocked to the ground and was knocked unconscious.
