Following is a sample from the Federal Way police log:

April 3

Malicious mischief: At about 11:57 p.m. near the 1700 block of SW 311th St., officers responded to a call of malicious mischief. The victim’s ex-girlfriend slashed his tires. His ex was apparently knocking on his door prior to police arrival, and a neighbor saw him sitting outside his house, but there were no witnesses to the malicious mischief itself.

April 4

Female wandering: At about 9:22 a.m. near the 32000 block of 1st Ave. S., officers responded to a 911 call from a bus driver of a female wandering on the side of the road near the listed location, carrying a teddy bear and crying without any shoes on. An officer made contact and found that the female was not a danger to herself. She was given a courtesy ride home. Her name came back with a $1,000 warrant attached and she was issued a promise to appear notice.

Teen enters window: At 11:41 a.m. at the Lodge at Peasley, a resident called 911 after hearing a noise in their back bedroom and finding a teenager. The resident startled the teen, who jumped back out of the window and took off. Due to the time of day, the resident believes the teen mistakenly entered the wrong window.

Bomb threat: At around 1:29 p.m. near the 1600 block of SW 304th St., an unknown subject called the school and said there was a bomb in the school before hanging up. The school was evacuated and the suspect was called back because he called from a school phone. Post Miranda, the suspect admitted to calling in the fake bomb threat. The suspect was arrested and booked into the King County Juvenile Detention Center.

April 5

Beer theft: At around 3:55 p.m. near the 2100 block of 356th St., an unknown male entered the 76 gas station and approached the front counter, demanding the register be opened. At one point the suspect produced a fixed blade knife from his waistband before fleeing with only a stolen beer.

Victim pulls out gun: At about 9:25 p.m. near the 2100 block of SW 336th St., A victim reported that when he was leaving the Safeway, he was approached by a male who demanded his wallet and was holding his hand in his pocket as if a gun was there. The victim was a legal gun carrier and pulled out his gun, causing the male to flee on foot southbound. The victim did not want to give a written statement, but requested more patrols of the area.

April 6

Assault in progress: At approximately 12:04 a.m. near 1900 S. 314th St., officers responded to a report of an assault in progress at a store at the listed location. The reporting party, a store manager, followed two suspects out of the store who had stolen $75 worth of merchandise. The reporting party said the suspects were trying to hit him with their car. When an officer contacted the reporting party, he reported that the manager stood in front of the car trying to stop the suspects from leaving. Neither he nor any other employee was injured. The suspects fled the area in a silver Audi, and area checks came back negative.

$50,000 in warrants: At about 1:51 a.m., Thurston County Sheriffs pulled over a male on a routine traffic stop. The male subject was found to have $50,000 of misdemeanor warrants out of Federal Way for a failure to appear order violation. The warrant was confirmed and the subject was booked into SCORE jail.

April 7

Armed robber nabbed: At approximately 12:42 p.m. near the 2100 block of SW 356th St., officers responded to a call for an armed robbery that occurred at the gas station at the listed location. The clerk said the suspect entered the store, stole alcohol and left without paying. When the clerk attempted to confront him, the suspect pulled out a knife and threatened to kill the clerk. The suspect then fled the area on a bicycle. The suspect was found later after he changed his appearance. He was found in possession of the stolen goods and the knife. He was also identified by the clerk. He was booked into SCORE jail.

April 8

Husband assaults pregnant wife: At approximately 5:10 p.m. near the 29500 block of 21st Place S., officers and South King Fire & Rescue responded to the listed location for domestic violence and threats between a husband and wife. The suspect allegedly threatened to kill his currently pregnant wife and also punched, head-butted and kneed her in the side. SKFR examined her and the husband was booked into SCORE.

Threats to kill: At about 7:01 p.m. near the 2000 block of S. 304th St., two residents reported to 911 that they were attempting to kick out one of the reporting party’s brothers, who started making threats to kill them and burn their house down after he was asked to leave. The witnesses told officers he often makes threats like that, but they took him more seriously this time because he had something to be mad about. They also asked about no contact orders and the officer explained the process to them. The officer then contacted the person who made the threats and advised him not to do it again. The suspect denied making any threats.
