Good afternoon. No, you do not. You have no legal obligation to speak with them. It is at your discretion and if you do not want to speak or cooperate, you are under no legal obligation to do so. If you are scared, you can always retain a criminal defense attorney and have them reach out to the police on your behalf, to see what they want from you and who can represent you and decide if it is in your best interest to cooperate.
