Federal Way police caught a Puyallup man on Saturday who was wanted for felony stalking and featured on Washington's Most Wanted as an armed and dangerous fugitive.

An anonymous tipster reported seeing the suspect in the 100 block of SW Campus Drive in Federal Way.
The suspect, 31-year-old Coleman Kim, was charged in February with felony stalking and had four felony warrants out for his arrest — three of them for domestic violence.
Kim is accused of continually contacting and threatening to kill a Federal Way woman. On one occasion, the victim left her apartment and saw Kim standing on her neighbor's balcony yelling her name, according to court documents.
Kim's previous criminal convictions include felony harassment, third-degree assault and a 2011 conviction for assaulting his 6-year-old nephew.
Police confirmed the man had a Department of Corrections escape warrant and he was arrested and booked on Saturday.
