Thank you very much for your patience. Once the police have your statement regrettably it is not in your hands to stop them from charging him or prosecuting. Criminal matters are against the State and the victim is a witness so even if you do not want them to do anything now, the police and CPS will decide if they have enough evidence to secure a conviction. You can advise them that you do not want to be a witness and they may decide to not progress it. As you are not married unfortunately they can secure your attendance by way of a warrant.
Any follow up please do not hesiate to send your message, I am glad to assist you further. Thank you for contacting just answer. All the best.
