Police nab suspects who carjacked woman at gunpoint, crashed vehicle in Federal Way

Suspects who fled the scene of a hit and run collision turned out to be alleged armed carjackers, police said.

Police arrested two suspects after they allegedly carjacked a woman at gunpoint and later crashed the vehicle and fled on foot on Monday night.

Officers responded to a report of a carjacking just before 6 p.m. near the 2600 block of SW 330th St., according to Federal Way police Cmdr. Kurt Schwan.

The female driver had stopped at a stop sign when a suspect on foot, armed with a handgun, approached her vehicle, opened the car door and ordered her out of the vehicle. The victim complied and two suspects then fled in her vehicle, Schwan stated. The victim was not injured.

Just before 11:30 p.m., officers responded to a hit and run collision near the 2700 block of SW 327th St. The vehicle involved was the carjacked vehicle from earlier in the evening. The two suspects fled the area on foot.

Police took one of the suspects into custody without incident, while the other suspect continued to flee on foot. Police used a K-9 unit to track and locate the other suspect, Schwan stated.

Both suspects were booked into jail, one at King County Juvenile Detention and the other at King County Jail.
