Couple gets violent while driving home from funeral | Federal Way Police Blotter

The following is a sample of the Federal Way police log

June 19

Welfare check: At about 3:28 a.m. near the 31600 block of 23rd Avenue South, a male subject was on the outside of the railing at the top of the transit center at the listed address. The male was allegedly displaying some concerning behavior, possibly intending to jump from the top of the transit center. A Federal Way police officer maintained a dialogue with the subject and was eventually able to be walked back to the parking lot by two officers.

June 20

Suspicious persons: At about 4:50 p.m. near the 2600 block of SW 332nd Street, the female reporting party said both she and her husband have noted suspicious individuals going through their and their neighbor’s unsecured mailboxes. A security camera captured a male approaching the mailboxes and trying to go through them, but he was not seen taking anything. It’s unknown if this male is associated with any past thefts. The reporting party was not sure how much of her mail may have been taken.

June 21

Protection order violation: At about 1:36 a.m. near the 2400 block of South 273rd Street, police witnessed a suspect actively violating a protection order at the listed location while at the front door of the protected party’s address. The suspect fled from police on foot, but was arrested shortly after pursuit began after the suspect fell into sticker bushes.

Suspicious activity: At about 1:46 p.m. near the 2300 block of SW 339th Street, officers were called to the area of 2900 SW 336th Street after a passerby reported seeing a female fall out of a truck and start running toward Fred Meyer. Officers were unable to locate any of the involved parties after they arrived on location. None of the involved parties called 911. About 15 minutes later, another passerby reported verbally arguing near the 2300 block of SW 339th Street. The females fit the description given in the first call. There were no reports of assaults. Officers checked the second location but could not find the subjects.

June 22

McDonald’s assault: At about 12:40 a.m. near the 34800 block of Pacific Highway South, officers responded to a possible assault at a McDonald’s at the listed location. The caller reported being in a verbal dispute with a customer at the drive-thru window, being verbally accosted for a card-reader error. The caller confronted the suspect in the parking lot after believing he was talking disrespectfully. After attempting to photograph the car’s license plate, she believes the suspect tried to run her over as he was leaving. The suspect vehicle was not located. Officers are still waiting for video surveillance of the incident.

Possible handgun threat: At about 2:18 a.m. near the 31800 block of Pacific Highway South, a female reported that she was standing somewhere near the listed location when an unknown male approached her and pointed what she believed to be a handgun at her. She then drove to Comfort Inn and called the police. She said the suspect was wearing dark clothing, possibly with a backpack.

Traffic accident: At about 1:03 p.m. near Weyerhaeuser Way South and 33rd Place South, officers received two very different calls about the same traffic accident, according to the police report. One party called 911 saying they observed a vehicle swerving behind them before it collided with their vehicle at a Weyerhaeuser roundabout, pushing their car forward. There was no reported damage to their car’s bumper, however. When the caller exited their vehicle to speak with the driver of the other car, the suspect car sped off. The caller was able to obtain the vehicle’s license plate. A short time later, according to the report, the driver of the swerving vehicle called to say he was involved in an accident at a Weyerhaeuser roundabout after the car in front of him “brake-checked” him. After that, the male said the people in the first car got out and started beating him up, giving him a swollen lip. The male refused to come to the station so his injuries could be verified, and hung up angrily on officers when they tried to question him further. When officers contacted the occupants of the first vehicle and confronted them about what the second driver had said, they confirmed they did punch him in the face and try to pull him out of the car. An officer completed an exchange of information and traffic incident form, which was provided to the occupants of the first car.

June 23

Domestic violence: At about 5:15 p.m. near the 33700 block of 40th Court SW, a boyfriend and girlfriend were allegedly involved in a domestic violence incident while driving home from a funeral. The boyfriend pulled the girlfriend’s hair, punched her in the face and then pulled off the center console and started to beat her with it. The girlfriend bit her boyfriend on his face in defense. The boyfriend allegedly grabbed the wheel of the car the girlfriend was driving and on several occasions tried to turn the vehicle off and pull out the key. All of this took place while a frightened witness was in the back seat.
