What do I do if I just had a crime committed against me?
Get to a safe place and immediately call the police department in the town in which the crime occurred. File a police report giving as many details as possible about what occurred, when, where, who was present, what was said, how you can be contacted, etc. The police will investigate the crime and will bring it to the attention of the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office for possible criminal charges, and the police will make an arrest, if appropriate. Always call the police first.
