The following is a sample of the Federal Way police blotter:
Car trouble: At 3:55 p.m. Dec. 27 in the 30900 block of Pacific Highway South, a man took an automobile to Bucky’s for diagnosis/repair. The manager informed the man that the problem could not be diagnosed because of other pre-existing conditions with the car. The man became upset and a verbal argument ensued. The manager said the man threatened to shoot him, but no gun was seen. He did not want to press charges, but wanted the man trespass banned from the business. The man left but was later contacted by police at his residence. He denied threatening to shoot anyone and said the business manager and staff were the ones being threatening toward him. The man was banned from the business.
Rape report: At 5:35 p.m. Dec. 27, a female reported she had been raped by someone she know. The victim said she had been picked up by the suspect and taken to his home. When she refused to have intercourse with him, he became angry and threatened her with a large kitchen knife and then proceeded to penetrate her with an object. The victim fled and then called police. She was transported to St. Francis Hospital, where a sexual assault exam was completed. The victim refused to show officers where the assault took place.
Child abuse: At 2:39 p.m. Dec. 27, an officer was asked to assist an outside agency on 25th Place South regarding a young boy who had superficial burns along the left side of his face and shoulder. Upon investigating, officers found the living environment of the boy and the circumstances of the burns were not safe for the child. Officers transferred custody to the boys’ grandparents.
Mother does not approve: At 5:52 a.m. Dec. 27, an officer was dispatched to the 2100 block of Southwest 352nd Street for a report of a domestic incident. Upon arrival, the officer found both parties were gone. The officer contacted the reporting party by phone, and she stated she called because she had been fighting with the father of her children about him smoking marijuana in the house. She said the father then pushed and slapped her, but she was not in pain and not injured. The female said she did not require police assistance, and she would instead seek a protection order.
The alcohol talking: At 6:12 p.m. Dec. 26 in the 35000 block of 16th Avenue South, officers were dispatched to a physical domestic report in which the adult daughter had assaulted her parents and threatened to shoot them. When officers arrived, all parties contacted were emotionally calm, and the father was asleep. All reported that no assault occurred, and there was only light pushing and shoving. Officers did not see any signs of physical injury. The mother stated the threats were “the alcohol talking,” and no one was afraid. The family only wanted the daughter to leave, which she did.
Warrant arrest: At 8:34 a.m. Dec. 26, a female was contacted in the 1600 block of South 312th Street where she appeared to have been sleeping for the night. Upon identifying her, a criminal records check indicated she had a warrant for second degree criminal trespass with bail set for $500. The warrant was confirmed, and she was given a new court date before being released.
No way out: At 2:57 a.m. Dec. 26 in the 33000 block of Pacific Highway South, a suspect fled from a traffic stop after an officer attempted to make contact. The suspect led police on a foot chase, eventually jumping a fence into a secure storage facility.

The suspect was arrested without incident and booked into Score Jail on multiple charges including trespassing, resisting or interfering with police and a traffic offense.
