I filed a police report against my brother for verbal abuse and physical abuse.
My brother spit in my face, and kept shoving me, and when I tried to call 911 for help he fought to take the phone from me, leaving gashes of skin off my thumb, which bled profusely. It is now swollen and looks infected.
I also filed charges because he threatened to shoot me in the head as he pointed his finger at my forehead and pretended to shoot a gun. The police officer who took my report stated that the DA's office does not pursue legal action against siblings. This brother has been arrested in the past for assault. What are my options?
I should also mention we are both adults in our late 50s.
