Recently I have been assaulted by a gym buddy for no good reason. He lost his mind and punched my head repeatedly before being pulled away.
All due to mix up in an online order for protein shake. I helped them to collect orders (with no income nor benefit whatsoever). He ordered Chocolate but came Vanilla, I even agreed to give him mine (Chocolate) and take the Vanilla instead. I thought he was kidding when he threatened to beat me up as the conversation took place via mobile MSN (Text).
But I was punched. I couldn't remember the few seconds after the attack. i.e. who was there to pull him away. After that, he continued shouting at me in rage, that he will chop me to death and even made gestures, (slitting the throat) while staring at me.
My jaw is swollen and hurts when I eat and drink. I can't fully open my mouth. I am also dizzy (on and off).
I have since lodge a police report and went to follow up on the police medical report.
From what I gather, he has a history of violence and can be emotionally/mentally unstable at times.
What would you do at this stage if you are in my shoes? Would you pursue the matter legally? Or let it go?
