Police arrested a 17-year-old male after a trio of armed suspects robbed a Federal Way Safeway and fled on foot on Tuesday.
At approximately midnight, the suspects entered the Safeway on Southwest 336th Street and robbed the grocery store, according to Federal Way police Commander Kurt Schwan.
An officer responding to the 911 call spotted the suspects as they fled on foot, exited his vehicle and chased them on foot.
Additional Federal Way police units responded to assist, including the department’s K9 unit and Kaiser the K9. The officers established a perimeter and initiated a K9 search.
Police located one of the suspects, a 17-year-old male, during the search and booked him into King County Juvenile Detention for robbery.
According to Schwan, police are working on identifying the outstanding suspects and determining if they are associated with other incidents in the city and surrounding jurisdictions.
