Time limit for police to file charges

My fiance was attacked by our neighbor

with a concealed knife. My fiance called

the police and they arrested them both

stating they are taking them both in as

suspects and victims: assualt with a

deadly weapon. I bailed my fiance out

and we went to the courthouse the

bondsman told us to--the court clerk

had not heard of the case. They called

the DA- who had not heard of the case.

The clerk told us that the police are

most likely figuring out whether or not

they want to charge him with anything.

How long after the incident do the

police have to press charges?
