hello i can help you with this matter. do you know who the five men?
Ok Why do you want to report this?
I think you are taking a risk. There is no way around it.
There is a defence of pre-emptive strike self defence but it is very hard to run. The reality is that you are probably right. The police may well take the view that this is just a simple first blow assault.
If you are on a suspended then it is a risk. I wouldn't recommend reporting it to be wholly honest.
If you are intent upon reporting it then you can only tell the truth but you should understand you are taking a risk.
I suppose if these people are found it is fair to say that they have committed an offence as well as they went over the top in the course of defending themselves even if the view is taken that you were the initial aggressor.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Well, you wouldn't get compensation even if you did report it.
Reports to the police do not secure compensation.
