Sample of the Federal Way Police crime blotter.

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

Kidnapping?: At 8:03 p.m. Sept. 10 near the 28700 block of Military Road S., witnesses claimed to have seen a male force a female into a white Dodge minivan. According to the witness, this occurred on the north side of the 7-11 located at the listed address.

Inadvertent Police Damage: At 12:51 a.m. Sept. 9 near the 30500 block of 5th Ave. SW, officers responded to the listed location where a subject was in need of medical attention. While strapping the subject onto a gurney, officers inadvertently caused damage to two surrounding vehicles. One vehicle sustained damage to the side view mirror, and the other had multiple deep scratches on the passenger door. The owners of the vehicles were contacted and given case numbers.

Attempted Car Theft: At 12:11 a.m. Sept. 9 near the 2200 block of S. Star Lake Road, officers were dispatched to the listed location where a car theft was in progress with the victim holding the suspect there with a gun. When officers arrived they detained both the victim and the suspect. The victim was released and the suspect was booked into SCORE.

Father and Son: At 3:38 a.m. Sept. 8 near the 30800 block of 7th Ave. SW, police responded to a call of an altercation between a father and son because the father reportedly slept with the son’s girlfriend. The son smashed the father’s windows and threw rocks and a metal rod at the father. The father was struck in the head multiple times and was injured. The son apparently locked himself in the house, threatened suicide by cop, and held a knife to his own throat. The son was safely arrested and booked into SCORE without incident.

Fake Money: At 6:23 p.m. Sept. 7 at an ARCO AM PM Station, an officer responded to a call from an employee about counterfeit money. According to the employee, a shirtless teenager entered the store and paid $20 for gas, and after the teen left the employee noticed the bill was fake. The employee did not have a license plate number or any other identifying information. Officers were unable to locate the teen and video footage was unavailable at the time. The counterfeit bill was entered into evidence.

Would-Be Burglar: At 10:18 a.m. Sept. 7 near the 32500 block of 39th Place SW, a female victim was in her residence at the listed location when she said she heard someone ring her doorbell while she was in the bathroom. When she checked her front doorstep through the peephole she didn’t see anyone. She then heard rustling coming from her downstairs blinds and and witnessed a male trying to enter her home through the window. The suspect took off when confronted.

Delayed Assault: At 9:33 p.m. Sept. 6 near the 3800 block of SW 336th St., police responded to a report of an assault that occurred in October 2016. Apparently on that date the caller had been in a physical altercation with his current girlfriend’s ex. At the time he did not feel like it needed to be documented but now he does because he also suspects his girlfriend’s ex of tampering with his vehicle, although he has no concrete proof of this. The responding officer documented the incident but advised he could not file criminal charges because of the delayed reporting date.

Stalker: At 2:38 p.m. Sept. 5 near the 1060 block of S. 320th St., police responded to a call of a woman who believed she was being stalked. She told police she had come out to her car and found flowers on it. She had also found several packages on her doorstep but threw them all away without opening them. She reported that she had not seen anyone suspicious around her car or apartment, but was advised to call if she noticed anyone suspicious.

Assault on School Property: At 7:18 a.m. Sept. 5 at the 35900 block of 16th Ave. S., police responded to a call of an assault at the listed location, Todd Beamer High School. Apparently the victim was in the commons at the high school when a suspect ran up behind them and struck them in the back of the head and body several times. The suspect, who was not a student, was located by police and trespassed from the school property. The victim refused to cooperate with police.

Hysterical Screaming: At 9:51 p.m. Sept. 4 at 34000 Weyerhaeuser Way S., police responded to a call of a woman screaming in hysterics and not answering any questions. When officers arrived at the scene they found two sisters in a verbal dispute. The sisters were interviewed separately and no crime was found to be committed. One of the sisters said they were driving from Auburn and the other started to throw things out of the car window. Both parties were uncooperative with police and would not provide details. Both sisters said they just wanted to leave.

Baby Momma Drama: At 2:53 a.m. Sept. 4 near the 2600 block of S. 301st St., officers attempted to pull over a vehicle that failed to yield for multiple city blocks. The vehicle finally came to a stop in front of a house. All occupants were detained. The driver later told officers he did not stop because he had warrants and needed to first get the car to his baby momma.
