The victim wants to press charges against Kanye ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.  What's more, our sources say he's been interviewed by cops and they've determined he did indeed suffer injuries during the attack.  Cops will refer the case to the D.A. as a felony attempted robbery and not a battery case.  The routine is to go after the suspect for the most serious charge.

He is the dumb idiot who plays into these situations. Kanye face it, you are in the public eye. You make millions of dollars through your music. Many people would love to be in your situation. Stop, take a picture, say a few words and they will leave you alone.
