There are four types of assault that a person may be charged with, this is common assault, serious assault, assault occasioning bodily harm, and grievous bodily harm. In Queensland, any person who makes physical contact with another person, without that persons consent, may be charged with assault. However, in some cases, the physical contact need not occur, where a gesture or threatened use of force may constitute assault.
