Where No One Has Gone Before

What to do when your book store is broken in to?

Location: A book store in Brooklyn, present day
Scenario: A 911 operator recieves a call from a secuirty guard. Earlier in the night, he was hit on the head from behind, and fell unconscious. When he came to, the store in question had been vandalized, especially the "Employees Only" areas. The vandalizer(s) have since fled the scene. The store is on rented property.

My question is: What would emergency services do? I'm assuming that they would send both a medical worker and a police officer, and that the police officer would take the security guard's statement and pictures of the crime scene and such, but I can't find any confirmation on that. Also, would they contact the renter, or the owner, or both?

Searches tried: Various combinations of "burgurlay" "break-in" "alert" "police" and "procedures".

(The bookstore has a secuirty guard because of the Stargate-type thing being hidden in the basement, in case you were wondering. But the policemen aren't going to find that out.)
