Person breaks into my house and steals my belongings steals my car vandalizes my other car and physically assaults my girlfriend can I have him arrested

Yes, absolutely. Your pending charges have nothing to do with you being the victim of a crime.
You should immediately contact the police agency in the jurisdiction in which your home is located. They will begin the criminal investigation process, and take the next steps from there.
