You've got the terminology wrong

Bringing your fist back by your ear is assault -- it is the threat of force.

Lightly touching someone is battery.

Your son did not commit only assault; he committed assault and battery.

The owner(s?) of the house also committed both assault and battery, and they should be liable for it.

You need to teach your son a bit more about peer pressure, as others have noted. We were all young once; some of us did not abuse women.
