Gestures or actions that are generally deliberate and repetitive, harm
someone’s physical integrity, and have the effect of frightening, hurting, or controlling them.
This may include intentionally kicking, tripping, shoving, pushing, spitting on, pinching, forcing, or hitting someone.
Many criminal offences are associated with physical bullying, including assault.
