Police deployed a K9 that was unable to locate a burglary suspect who allegedly broke into a Federal Way condo and injured a man on Saturday.

Police responded to the call shortly after 7 p.m. in the 2100 block of S. 336th St. The victim told police he borrowed $50 from a woman he knew only as “Cynthia” at Emerald Queen Casino on July 31. On Saturday, Cynthia and an unknown man arrived at the victim’s condo at 9 a.m., demanding $150, according to the police report.

The victim initially refused to pay the $150, but then told the suspects to return later and he would have the money. They returned a few hours later and the victim did not answer the door. The suspects returned again at 6:45 p.m. and the victim opened the door. The suspects demanded $300, the report continues.

When the man refused to pay, the male suspect allegedly forced his way into the home and pushed the victim into the kitchen, striking the victim’s head against the wall, the report continues.

The suspect told the man that he would return at 9 p.m. and if the victim didn’t have the money, the suspect would kill him, the report states.

The male suspect exited the house and the victim called 911 and followed the suspect to keep a visual. The suspect noticed the victim following him and asked if he called the police. When the victim answered that he had, the suspect began running west on South 336th Street, according to the report.

A description of the suspect was provided by dispatch and a perimeter was set for a K9 track, but the suspect was not located, according to the report.

The victim stated he did not need medical attention for the pain sustained to his head and back.
