Battery and assault are two separate criminal acts that can be combined into one charge. Assault and battery crimes can be defined as the act of threatening or physically harming someone. It is usually backed up by sufficient intimidation to make the victim believe that the threat is real. Battery crimes refer to the act of physically harming another person with malicious intent. Because it is rare for an assault to occur without battery or assault, battery and assault are often combined. People who threaten others violently usually respond with their intent to execute their threat. However, people rarely attack others without warning or purpose, so the battery is seldom charged by itself.
