A case against the guards that came in an attacked you would be better bet.
I'm sorry that this happened to you.
Generally speaking, the police have no obligation to help you. It's sad but true. There are exceptions to this rule, like if the police put you in protective custody. That does not appear to be the case here.
Nevertheless, you sound like you have a case against your landlord for the security guards' actions. In addition to the assault, you may also have claims for constructive eviction if you can show that the assault was part of the landlord's efforts to get you to leave the home even if you are not currently slated for eviction.
A good starting point would be to request all records from the police station regarding the names of the security guards, reports, photos, etc. Thereafter, a lawyer should be able to give you a better sense of what claims you have.
Keep in mind that civil rights claims usually require you to show that an action was taken against you because of race/sex/religion/etc. If you would like to pursue a civil rights claim, you will need to carefully consider how to prove discrimination in addition to the assault and possible constructive eviction claim.
