Bava Kamma 92 - Assailant Must Ask Forgiveness from his Victim (Torts)

Although the assailant gives his victim compensation, the assailant is not pardoned by God until he requests forgiveness from his victim, as it says, "And God came to Abimelech in a dream by night and said to him - Behold, you are to die... but now, return the man's wife [and appease him enough] so that he will [even] pray for you."

And from where do we know that if the victim does not forgive him, the victim is considered cruel? It says, "...Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Avimelech..."
