The Difference Between
Battery and Assault

Battery is unwanted physical contact that is offensive or that results in bodily harm. Assault is an attempt at, placing someone in apprehension of or the actual act of causing bodily harm. Battery and assault often go hand in hand, but it’s also possible to have battery without assault.

Here are a few examples of assault:

  • Pushing, hitting with an object or otherwise physically abusing a person
  • Domestic violence and spousal abuse
  • A physical altercation, such as a road rage incident
  • Sexual assault
  • Assault by inmate
  • Assault against a police officer
  • Assault with a knife, firearm or another weapon
