Hi than you for your message, did you make clear to the police you are autistic? Does this affect your ability to understand particularly in extreme scenarios like the one described?
Hi thank you for your message, no the police were not right to take your statement whilst you were subject to medical injuries. You should have been given a medical examination. Therefore, you can contact the police and make a claim on the basis the police breached their code of conduct. You can open a case against your attacker as well yes. I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
Hi thank you for your message, I am afraid not. They might be trying to suggest that you can't open the case as they want to see what happens in the case against you but you should be able to complain. If there is any issue with this you should ask for the matter to be raised higher within the police and reviewed by a senior officer.
