I see.

You are charged with different offences.

In short then, yes they could amend the charges. If a victim comes forward then they could bring a charge of assault.

Of course its quite unlikely that anybody would come forward at this stage but if that were to happen then they could amend the charge.

They will not arrest you though. The crown will just apply to amend the charge sheet at court.

Can I clarify anything for you?
