physically robbed by skype user, possiblity of tracing them?

[ Edited ]

Hi all, unfortunately today i was robbed by a person who I had invited into my home hoping to help them in a difficult situation.  I have no way of locating this person apart from their skype user name, as they had used my computer to access thier account, is there any way that i can try to locate this person through skype or anyone who can assist me in locating them using this information.  I will add that I am in a location where the police are not much use, too busy making money from corruption to actually catch any criminals, so I am trying to locate this person myself.  I appreciate any advice, thanks.

Hello and I am sorry to learn of your misfortune.

1. Unfortunately we can't provide any personal details of the user unless requested to do so by an official law enforcement agency.

2. I can see your location and understand your statement.
