Threat with gun: At about 2:04 a.m. near the 2000 block of SW Dash Point Road, police were dispatched to a report of a threat with a weapon. Police spoke to the victims who stated that the suspect pointed a black handgun directly at their faces. The suspect was then booked for first-degree domestic violence assault and first-degree assault.

Robbed at gunpoint: At about 7:41 a.m. near the 1000 block of SW Campus Drive, a victim was robbed of his cellphone at gunpoint. An area check for the suspect was negative.

Nov. 27

Man beaten unconscious: At about 2:28 a.m. near the 2000 block of S. 304th Street, officers responded to a physical domestic assault. Officers arrived and contacted two brothers and their wives inside the home. The male victim had been beaten unconscious and had visible injuries to the back of the head. All parties involved referred to a third brother as the suspect who had left on foot prior to the police arrival. Officers developed probable cause to arrest the brother for domestic violence assault. The witnesses and victim were “generally uncooperative” and could not provide a name to positively identify the suspect. The victim was evaluated by SKFR crews and self-ambulated to the hospital.

Nov. 28

Burglar steals Segway scooter: At about 7:36 a.m. near the 1000 block of SW 298th Street, an unknown suspect broke the window of the victim’s vehicle, which was parked in the driveway. The suspect then used a garage door opener from inside the car to gain access to the secure garage while the victims were inside the residence. Once inside the garage, the suspect selected two sets of golf clubs and an electric Segway scooter before leaving the area in a silver Chrysler 300 with chrome wheels.

Man not missing: At about 3:31 p.m. near the 35400 block of Enchanted Parkway S., officers responded to a missing person report by phone. After investigation with help of the Puyallup Police Department, it was determined the man was not missing. The reporting party has a long history of taking advantage of the elderly male she was attempting to report as missing.

Block and attack: At about 10:23 p.m. near the intersection of SW 312th Street and 21st Place SW, a man pulled his vehicle in front of another vehicle driving in Federal Way, blocking the second vehicle’s pathway.

Police arrived on scene and upon attempting to contact the driver, the man put the car in reverse and drove directly into a police vehicle. The driver then drove forward before reversing again and directly into the police patrol vehicle again. The driver fled northbound on SW Dash Point Road.
