The following is a sample of the Federal Way Police crime blotter:

Blinding lights: At 6:53 p.m. March 7, an officer was dispatched to the area of The Commons mall after a report of someone pointing a laser light at airplanes landing at Sea-Tac Airport. The officer checked the area, including Steel Lake Park and the transit center, but did not see any lasers.

High school property not a house: At 1:03 p.m. March 7 at Federal Way High School, an officer received a call from a security guard for an unwanted subject. Upon arrival, the officer and guard found a transient male living in the kitchen rafters of the old central kitchen, separate from the main building, on the west side of the campus. A records check indicated the suspect had a felony warrant. He was booked in SCORE Jail. He was also issued a trespass notice from Federal Way Public Schools properties.

Assault suspect arrested: At 9:35 a.m. March 7 in the 100 block of Southwest Campus Drive, officers were dispatched to an assault that occurred at an apartment. Officers determined probably cause to arrest the male suspect. He was booked into SCORE Jail on domestic violence assault charges. The female victim declined medical treatment for a 1/4-inch-long cut on her hand. She was evaluated by South King Fire & Rescue personnel for strangulation. She was cleared at the scene.

Vicious dogs and owner: At 7:11 p.m. March 6 in the 33600 block of Weyerhaeuser Way South, a husband and wife reported they were walking their dogs when the husband was bitten by two off-leash pit bulls. During the interaction, the owner of the dogs threatened to kill the husband and pulled out a gun.

Successful rescue: At 8:07 p.m. March 5 in the 35000 block of 25th Avenue Southwest, police and fire were dispatched to the location for an unresponsive 10-year-old girl who was not breathing. Police arrived and attempted life-saving measures. When medics arrived, they eventually got a pulse back on the girl, who was then transported to the hospital. There were no signs of foul play. A pre-existing medical condition may have been the cause.

Wrong biker: At 1:07 p.m. March 5 in the 33400 block of 22nd Avenue Southwest, officers responded to a report of a theft at a nearby store. A customer witnessed the event and observed the suspect speak briefly to a male outside. The suspect then fled on a bike, and the other male, left on a different bike going in a different direction. The witness followed the second biker, who officers stopped. After a brief discussion, they determined the second biker was not involved, but he was a runaway. When confronted about this, he fled but left the bike, which was booked into property for safekeeping.
