If you are a victim of a crime, you should report it to the police who can support you. If possible, they will investigate what happened, find the criminal or criminals responsible and prosecute them, if there is enough evidence.
- If it is an emergency (if someone is in danger or has been hurt) you should call 999
- If it is not an emergency (if the crime has already happened and nobody is in danger or has been hurt) you should call 101
