About four days ago I was assaulted by an individual between the ages of 16 to 25. He struck me in the back of my head as hard as he could, as him and his friends passed me on bikes. I had heart palpitations from the event, and was reasonably afraid for my life. I was just informed the police had suspended my case.
The individuals in question are on a security camera striking me. A few days later I ran into them again at a Chik Fil A. All three were of the same build, and they had the same style and color of coats. If I'm able to look at the security camera footage I would be able to identify them. I snapped photos of them in the Chik Fil A to get clear shots of their faces. They're clearly active in or from the area.
Shouldn't the cops be able to give their photos to patrolling officers, and they arrest when their seen? Is there any means for me to get access to that security footage? I've called back a few times since the event occurred, and every time the officer told me to call back in a few days. They're going to offend again, possibly more seriously. Since I frequent the area, and they're still out there I basically need to get a conceal carry license to protect myself from future attacks. How can I get the cops to take this seriously?
