Sept. 29

Woman robbed at gunpoint: At about 2:14 a.m. near the 30800 block of 13th Place S., officers responded to an armed robbery. A woman stated an unknown male robbed her at gunpoint as she was walking into her garage. The suspect took the victim’s purse and fled. A K9 track was conducted with no results and footage from the neighbor’s Ring camera did not provide any useful information.

Trespassers on wetlands: At about 8:30 a.m. near the 651 block of S. 348th Street, officers made contact with several suspects who were trespassing at a location that was determined to be a sensitive wetland. All of the suspects were warned and immediately packed up their belongings to move on. The city’s parks department completed a cleanup of the garbage left behind.

Drink and dash: At about 7:44 p.m. near the 4615 block of SW 320th Street, an employee of the 7-Eleven reported two boys entered the store and stole alcohol. The boys apparently stole about $30 of Mike’s Hard Lemonade, along with several cans of Four Loko and Budweiser beer. They were last seen leaving the area on foot traveling northbound on 47th Avenue SW. The employee provided a brief description and said the boys appeared to be 14-16 years old.

Sept. 30

Cop hit with bicycle: At about 12:36 a.m. near the 27600 block of Pacific Highway S., officers responded to a domestic dispute. On scene, officers made contact with the involved parties and found no crime had occurred. One of the involved parties was extremely intoxicated and had damaged some items. The intoxicated man charged out of his apartment at officers and threw a bicycle, hitting one of the officers. The man was arrested.

Oct. 1

Attempted Best Buy break in: At about 4:30 p.m. near the 31601 block of Pacific Highway S., unknown suspects attempted to gain access to the loading dock area of Best Buy the night before by cutting through a rubber sheath that enclosed the off-loaded trailer to the interior of the loading dock. No entry was made and no items were stolen. An employee of the business reported that according to the corporation, replacing the sheath would be about $15,000.

Oct. 2

Suspicious fishing: At about 3:30 p.m. near the 1900 block of SW 341st Place, a parent reported that her 10-year-old son and his friend were approached by a man driving a black van. The man tried to engage with the boys and asked if they wanted to go fishing. When the boys declined, the man said he would buy them new Nike shoes if they would go. The kids walked away and later told the parent. The suspect is a man in his 30s wearing a floppy fishing hat.

Oct. 4

Human bone found: At about 7:24 p.m. near the 1900 block of SW 350th Street, a man reported that he found what he thinks is a human bone in his crawl space while doing renovations.

Oct. 5

Fake bill: At about 6:04 p.m. near the 31419 block of Pacific Highway South, an unknown female suspect produced a counterfeit $100 bill in an attempt to pay for a bag of dog food and a dog sweater at Petco. The suspect was advised by the cashier that the bill was counterfeit. The suspect then left the store and fled the area in a silver sedan.

Self-inflicted gunshot: At about 8:40 a.m. near the 400 block of SW 336th Court, it was reported a girl went for a run at approximately 7:30 in the morning, and did not return home. Her father checked her location on a Find My Phone app and found her deceased with a gunshot wound to the head. King County Medical Examiners came to the scene to recover her body. This incident was self-inflicted and there are no suspicious circumstances, police said.
