Two Federal Way police cars collide in Walmart parking lot

Following is a sample from the Federal Way police log.

LSD: At 1:39 a.m. July 7 near the 2300 block of S. 320th Street, police responded to multiple 911 calls regarding a naked male in the McDonald’s parking lot. When police arrived, the male was found naked in his vehicle rambling incoherent statements. His girlfriend told police they had done LSD together.

Cops collide: At 8:37 a.m. July 7 at 1900 S. 314th Street, two police cars were involved in an accident in the Walmart parking lot. The officers were in marked patrol cars next to each other conversing during a break. When one of the officers went to get back on duty, he was unable to control his vehicle’s steering and hit the other vehicle, causing minor damage to the front driver’s side and rear driver’s side damage to the first car. Digital pictures were taken and downloaded.

Fast food assault: At 10:11 p.m. July 5 near the 2200 block of S. 320th Street, police responded to a dispute at a Wendy’s at the listed address. According to the report, a new employee had been verbally harassed at the drive-through for apparently working too slow. The suspect and two other females entered the establishment and began to throw food at the employee while yelling profanities. Before leaving, the suspects pushed over cash registers and broke a cookie dispenser.

Golf club assault: At 2:57 a.m. July 5 near the 4000 block of SW 327th Street, police responded to a call of a suspect assaulting her housemate with a golf club, causing injuries to his head. The suspect was not located and the victim was treated for injuries at St. Francis Hospital.

Elementary school fire: At 12:38 a.m. July 4 near the 2400 block of S. Star Lake Road, police responded to a report by school security of a fire at Mark Twain Elementary School, seemingly caused by fireworks. The fire extinguisher was not charged and therefore was ineffective in putting out the fire when it started. South King Fire and Rescue responded and were able to control the blaze. Investigation closed.

Armed robbery: At 5:26 p.m. July 3 near the 27000 block of Pacific Highway South, a suspect entered the McDonald’s at the listed address and asked for a large drink. After the cashier opened the register, the suspect lifted his shirt and showed the victim a handgun. Suspect then demanded money while threatening the victim. Victim gave suspect money and suspect grabbed more money from the register. The suspect then fled on foot to his vehicle, waiting nearby. The suspect was not located.

Gun theft: At 7:10 a.m. July 3 near the 3800 block of SW 331st Street, police responded to a call of a stolen AR-15. According to the police report, the victim left his gun in the trunk of his car after going shooting the night before. When he checked his vehicle the next morning, the trunk and driver side door were both open. Along with his rifle, he also had car speakers, a steering wheel and two duffle bags missing. The victim claims he does not know who broke into his vehicle. Case closed, leads exhausted.

Demons: At 2:59 a.m. July 2 near the 28800 block of Military Road South, police responded to a call about a male yelling for help for his sister in a Safeway parking lot. When police arrived, the subject was on the ground with no shoes and was being held by her brother. The subject was distant and staring off; she stated she had demons inside her. She reported that she had not slept or eaten in a long time. Police had difficulty getting information from her. The brother said the subject went outside and when he followed her, she pointed at him and said he was possessed. Then she proceeded to run down the middle of the street. The responding officer spoke with the father of the woman, and he said she had been released from the hospital for mental issues that same day. It is believed she may have smoked marijuana laced with something.

Wandering child: At 9:21 a.m.July 2 near the 32800 block of 26th Avenue SW, police responded to a call from a passerby about a 5-year-old child wandering in the roadway. Officers located the child immediately and reunited the child with the mother. Officers conducted a welfare check on the siblings at the residence and CPS was notified for a follow-up.
