Good evening, i would like to get legal advice regarding an assault case opened. Day before yesterday i recieved a call from my brother asking for help as his car was broken into. I arrived nd we drove a friend of his place where he parked his car and we drove with mine. We picked up the friend as the friend knows where the guys hang out as my brother saw one of the suspects. We drove there and i sat in the car whilst they fetch the suspect. We then went to the charge office. On arrival there i just went inand then went to sit in the car again. Now today this guy wants press cahrges of assault against the three of us. I cannot be detained as am working so i just want to know whats next or what to do.
