Police blotter: Reckless driver on 320th Street, disturbing messages, hotel horror

Following is a sample from the Federal Way police log:

High speed: At 2:24 a.m. April 11, a Federal Way police officer attempted to stop a white Subaru at South 320th Street and Pacific Highway South. The vehicle did not attempt to stop and reached speeds of 60 mph in the Commons Mall parking lot. The vehicle then entered South 320th Street in the opposite lane of traffic. Police found the Subaru later in the 4100 block of Southwest 320th Street in a single vehicle collision. The driver fled on foot and was not found after a K9 track. The passenger was arrested on an Auburn warrant.

Disturbing messages: At 12:43 p.m. April 11 at 2405 S. 300th Street, Federal Way police officers responded to a call from Wildwood Elementary School where disturbing messages from strangers were found on a fifth-grader’s cell phone. Some messages were sexual in nature, but no pictures were exchanged. The child was advised not to speak to strangers. The child’s parents said they would take away the cell phone.

Hotel room: At 3:21 p.m. April 11 in the 31000 block of Gateway Center Boulevard, a manager at Hampton Inn reported a suspicious incident involving a male who had checked into the hotel April 6 and checked out April 11. Cleaning staff discovered a large blood stain on the carpet along with blood and urine on the bed. After cleaning half the room, a manager was notified and the cleaning was stopped. When the male checked out, he reported no problems, but was seen limping, according to the police report. The bedding was placed in a drying locker for evidence in case a crime is discovered.
