No, you have not committed a crime and you do not need to worry. The landlord is simply trying to scare you and you should ask him to stop or you may report him to the police.

Shutting off the water could amount to illegal eviction. However, as you have been in contact with all the usual bodies and no one is willing to assist, it may be in your interests to vacate the room and move elsewhere unless you are willing to go through the stress, expense and inconvenience of fighting this.
Yes, you may file a police complaint against the landlord for shutting off the water and you may file a claim in the small claims court for your money at www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
All the best
You are welcome.
