Insulting in front of others

I had some issues with my colleague in relation to execution of certain things. We had strong arguments on that issue and he has insulted me in front of others in the office. One top of that he had also damaged some of my personal property. If I approach the police, what will be the action initiated against him for such acts? Please advise.
