A. ) Dear Sir,
Every act of criminal nature is illegal and you cannot take self defence unless it is very urgent and your life is under danger.

A. ) You cannot decide whether someone is guilty or not. That is upto the police and the court.
Secondly such harassment should've been complained to the police.
Thirdly she was abusing and not using physical force. You could abuse back, but the use of physical force does in no way come under self defense.
Lastly this being a petty issue which keeps on happening should not be a big concern. However, if she does go to the police station it might be possible that the two of you will be called to the police station for some question and answers.
Thanks
