Following is a sample from the Federal Way police log:

Robbery: At 6:21 a.m. Nov. 8 in the 33800 block of 1st Way South, a gas station clerk reported she had been robbed at gunpoint by four or five young mixed-race males. The group fled on foot toward the south after taking money from the register along with several packs and cartons of cigarettes. Police recovered some of the stolen items while searching the area. Police are investigating the case and reviewing surveillance footage.

Ex-roommate: At 12:24 a.m. Nov. 8 in the 30300 block of 9th Avenue South, a victim reported that he was asleep in his room with the door locked when an ex-roommate kicked in the door and assaulted him with a wooden stick, causing pain and injury. No arrests have been reported.

Finding Ronisha: At 12:32 a.m. Nov. 7 in the 31600 block of 23rd Avenue South, a woman lent her phone to her ex-girlfriend, whom she only knows by her first name Ronisha. The woman said Ronisha had walked away with the phone and refused to give it back. The woman did not have the phone’s serial number. She also said Ronisha is homeless. An area check for Ronisha turned up negative.

Unknown caller: At 6:56 a.m. Nov. 6 in the 4000 block of Southwest 320th Street, an employee at a 7-Eleven said he had received a phone call from an unknown number. A male on the line said, “I saw on Facebook you are going to get robbed tonight.” When the employee asked for details, the caller hung up.

Bad Lincoln: At 7:50 p.m. Nov. 6, a caller reported that a black four-door Lincoln had been driving erratically on eastbound State Route 18 when someone from the car threw or shot something that broke the rear passenger window of her vehicle. There were no signs of a firearm being used, according to police, who say an Airlift or BB gun could have caused the damage. The Lincoln was last seen exiting onto southbound I-5.
