I expect that it is an event that has overlapping actions. For example, an abusive FA can create an "assault" scenario when a threat or other form of intimidation is undertaken. The loss of luggage can also be treated as a theft, although police cannot usually be bothered to investigate. However, as we all know there have been theft rings at multiple airports in Canada and the airlines have not been good corporate citizens and reported the issue. Rather, the insurers who have been paying claims on baggage and cargo are the ones requiring a police report.
