Is it legal in this country to verbally threaten someone, threaten criminal damage against his property.
Found 22nd Aug 2013
So this morning 2 guys I know came round and threatened to hurt me and and my 16 year old son over an alleged incident they were told my son had done. While they were here they threatened to damage my house ie putting windows through etc. My son had been entrusted to keep an eye on a house while its owner (wifes friend) was away on holiday but they had heard a rumour that the house had become trashed and without looking for themselves came here first kicking off. It turned out to be all false and they later apologised to my son but I want to know what the law has to say on the matter. They came onto my property, threatened me, my son and my property and I had no reason not to believe that that was the case. I can handle myself if needed but these guys have quite the reputation and wouldnt mind knocking them down a peg or 2.
