I was invited to a police station in March as I was accused

This answer was rated:

I was invited to a police station in March as I was accused of assaulting a man. I did not assault the man and gave a statement stating this. I have now been asked to attend a police station for finger prints under battery.
Assistant: Have any charges been filed? If so, when is the next court date?
Customer: None what so ever. I have not been charged or arrested for anything.
Assistant: Where did this occur?
Customer: It didn’t. The man claims this happened 10 minutes from my house
Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: The person who claims I hit him also was the estate agent for my purchase of the house

Jamie I done a voluntary interview back in March. I denied assault on anyone. The police said they would be looking at cameras in the surrounding area but I was not there.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I can do finger prints no problem but after a voluntary interview with no charges relating to an alleged incident in March I am bemused

But what is it you want to know?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I would like to know why after nearly 6 months I am being asked for finger prints?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I have not been arrested nor charged with anything
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
What I would actually like is for the police to be asked what they have to actually request this? They have zero

When was this said to have occurred?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
March 2018

Ok - they have 6 months to charge.

So yes, they can ask for prints. Otherwise, they could charge you.

If its a common assault, they have 6 months.

If its a more serious assault then there is no time limit

I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Ok thanks
