Sorry, you are in Scotland. Will opt out for others.
Hello my name is Ross and I can help with this matter.
You have done the correct thing by reporting the issue to the police. What happens next is the police will investigate and potentially charge the person with the abuse. This will then get passed to the Procurator Fiscal. They will assess the case and make a decision whether or not to pursue the case. In these types of proceedings, it is the procurator fiscal who presses charges against he accused and not actually you. However, you will, of course, be part of the case and be the prime witness in relation to the matter. As draconian as it may sound, you do not have to do anything now except comply with what is asked of you from the price and the Procurator Fiscal in relation to the case. You will be given updates from the PF and police as to what is happening with the matter.
I hope this information has helped.
