Assault is the act of threatening to physically harm someone, regardless of whether not this contact is actually made. Although assault is often accompanied by battery, there are some cases where it is not. Examples of assault without battery include pointing a gun at someone and threatening to shoot, swinging a baseball bat at someone, or waving a knife at someone. In these situations, the person who is threatening harm has a clear intention of causing harm.
Aggravated assault is a specific type of assault in which someone threatens serious bodily harm: the presence of a dangerous weapon often classifies assault into aggravated assault, which is a felony.
