    To be honest I'm not 100% sure but I don't think this will have a massive impact on your DBS check as you got let off without any charges; I think you need to actually be charged (or at very least have an offical warning) for it actually to be a black mark against you to show up on you DBS check.

    But, that is an awful situation to be in and I hope everything works out for you

    Yeah, I mean its totally understandable it sounds so awful, but try and focus on the positives as long as you're ok and as far as I'm aware it wont effect your DBS.

    I did a quick google and found this "An enhanced check will show any unspent convictions, cautions, warnings or reprimands along with any spent convictions and cautions that are not eligible for filtering. Intelligence held by the police may also be included if the Police reasonably believe it is pertinent to a recruitment decision*.
    An enhanced check with DBS Barred list check will show the same information as an enhanced check along with any information held on the barred list(s) being checked (Children's, Adults' or Both)."

    so I think you're safe if you were just let go but I found a good website if you wanted to look further into it it is:

    hope this helps to put your mind at rest.
