Intimidation, Take By Means Of Law and Legal Definition

Generally, in an act of intimidation by any person, it is not necessary to prove that the alleged victim was actually frightened, or to prove that the act of the person was so violent to create terror, panic or hysteria in the mind of the victim. Whereas, a taking does not occur necessarily by means of intimidation, if any fear on the part of the victim occurred solely by his/her own timidity rather than some intimidating act on the part of the person. The gist of this offence is the taking of money or property which is aided or accompanied by willful, intimidating behavior on the part of the person.
