I don't believe so, you could give the police the Steam ID and then the police could contact Valve, but you cannot personally get their IP.

And well I'm not sure why you need to phone the police on people you only know within a gamer's network...

Well there are programs out there you can get it down to a street address (and better probably) anyway what I would do on Steam Friends, wait for him to go in a game that you can get into as well. Then type status in console and it should show his ip, name, etc..

Enjoy! :)
