If you legally lived there, and she caused it to be removed she is liable for the costs of recovering it. Whether police will accept a complaint is a different thing. If you have registration showing it was yours for some time, she knew that, then they might.

if your son was under age, technically your brother committed an assault. You need to take the youth to a dermatologist for starters. You can also sue him but if he doesn't own much that may not get you anywhere.
