Controlling/Coercive Behaviour - Statistics

Question

Since controlling or coercive behaviour in an intimate or family relationship became a criminal offence under section 76 of the Serious Crime Act 2015 on the 29th December 2015, to date:

 1) How many alleged incidents of controlling/coercive behaviour have been reported to the police?  

2) How have these alleged incidents been disposed of, i.e. charged, dismissed etc? I would like a breakdown for each incident.  

3) How many of these alleged incidents concerned victims aged 16 or 17?  

4) How many of these alleged incidents concerned victims aged under 16? 

I would like clarification for each question on whether the alleged incident took place in an intimate relationship or in a family relationship, and whether the victim was female or male
