Agreeing with Gene here. Another point is that, while technically you might
have been 'young and stupid', no matter what, the assault thing was wrong
for them to do. It was probably illegal too.

After all, most people have been 'young and stupid'; however, most people ,
in spite of that, do not expect to be assaulted. With good reason.

They might just reply with some kind of offer to head off a
possible suit, and if nothing else it might make someone squirm
for a while.
