What would you like to know about this?
Yes, you probably should not underestimate this situation. He has made an allegation and the fact that you do have the phone is very damaging. Even on your account there are offences in demanding £20 in exchange for the return of the phone.
To be wholly honest, you probably will be charged with something.
Running over his thumb is only going to be charged if he has some evidence of an injury.
You can only raise your defence in the normal way.
There are no real magic wands that remove the situation.
If you can ask a more specific question then I might be able to offer more.
Oh yes, false allegations are made all the time.
I'm not sure what you mean otherwise?
They won't take a report from you about this matter.
You are being investigated for the matters arising from his report.
Engage with the police and defend the allegation.
I thought the police had made contact?
I wouldn't do anything then. There is no point encouraging the police to investigate you.
Just do nothing.
No problem and all the best.
