While in some states assault and battery are addressed as one crime, under Illinois law, assaults and batteries are separate offenses. Assault is the threat of harming another physically without actually incurring bodily harm. A person who has reasonable fear of injury based on threat of violence may file assault charges. Battery is an actual physical attack on another person, which ranges from insulting physical contact to bodily injury.
