You should report what happened to you to the police. What may happen later in court should not really factor into your decision. He is facing the maximum remaining time on his existing probation plus whatever new charges there may be from what happened to you.
I would also strongly advise you seek victims counseling as well right away.
If you need a restraining order the police and victim counseling center should be able to assist.
Just go to the police. This clown is looking at probation violations plus new charges. Also, take advantage of the victim assistance program and secure a restraining order. Try not to be afraid. You are helping to get this creep off the streets.
Penalties can vary greatly depending on the strength of the evidence, the record of the offender and the extent of the injuries. Remember, he cannot retaliate if he's in prison.
