Not knowing all the details, but as long as it's his words, his evidence, it doesn't matter if he wrote it or dictated it to someone. Often police officers will take the statement, write as they are speaking with the witness and then have the witness sign the statement.
You are not a legal adult until age 18. Nobody can predict what the police or children's services might or might not do if you leave before then.

Technically yes. However, filing a lawsuit requires showing particular injury.
