Generally, an assault occurs when one person intentionally causes physical injury to another. As detailed in New York Penal Law Article 120, there are different types and levels of assault based on the manner in which the act is committed, circumstances of the alleged victim, degree of injury and whether the perpetrator uses a weapon.
There are legal defenses and mitigating factors that can be presented to successfully resolve an assault charge.
