Student arrested after bringing weapon to high school | Police blotter

Following is a sample from the Federal Way police log Sept. 9-14.

Sept. 9:

Man masturbates outside window: At about 1:58 a.m near the 1800 block of S. 330th Street, a witness reported an unknown man was knocking on his rear sliding door multiple times. The man then attempted to look through the resident’s front window. As he was trying to look out the window, the man had his penis exposed and appeared to be masturbating. The incident was captured on camera.

Stolen purse: At about 2:05 p.m. near the 33700 block of 21st Avenue SW, a woman reported she was loading bags into her vehicle when an unknown vehicle with unknown occupants drove up behind her. One female passenger grabbed the woman’s purse. The woman grabbed at her purse as the vehicle drove away, causing her to fall to the ground. No suspect information at this time.

Sept. 10

Escalated argument: At about 12:15 a.m. near the 4900 block of SW 319th Lane, a victim was involved in an argument with the suspect. The argument escalated and the suspect pointed a gun at the victim’s head.

Student brings weapon to school: At about 3:59 p.m. near the 2800 block of SW 320th Street, a student at Decatur High School was found to be in possession of a weapon on school grounds. He was booked into King County Detention on the charge.

Shots fired: At about 10:46 p.m. near the 100 block of SW Campus Drive, a Federal Way officer was driving when he heard approximately 20 gunshots fired. Several 911 calls reported shots at the Encore Apartments. Officers found 10 rifle casings in a driveway near 1st Avenue South.

Sept. 11

Passed out behind the wheel: At about 4:46 p.m. near the 31130 block of Pacific Highway South, officers responded to reports of a Corvette in the Jack in the Box driveway with the driver slumped over the wheel. The reporting party also saw a gun in the driver’s lap. Officers suspected the driver was intoxicated and used distanced attempts to contact the driver. The driver awoke prior to police announcements, but refused to comply with commands and fled in the vehicle. The vehicle drove over spike strips that had been deployed to help mitigate a possible pursuit. The driver fled the scene and was not pursued.

Sept. 13

Storage unit theft: At about 9:36 a.m. near the 35200 block of Pacific Highway South, officers responded to an overnight theft from a storage unit. The reporting party stated that two people had jumped the fence and broke into two recreational vehicles. Several items were stolen.

Man threatens to shoot service dog: At about 4:41 p.m. near the 2100 block of SW 352nd Street, a woman reported that an unknown man threatened to shoot her service dog and alleged that the man flashed a handgun tucked in his waistband. The woman stated she has had issues with the man in the past about her dog, who she said was not on a leash. No probable cause was developed at the time, no suspect information.

Sept. 14

Son assaults step-dad: At about 5:14 a.m. near the 1600 block of S. 370th Place, a suspect pushed his step-father down the stairs and then punched him in the face one time, causing a large gash. This incident was entirely unprovoked. The adult suspect was arrested on scene without incident and booked into SCORE Jail.

Kicked car: At about 11:22 a.m. near the 1600 block of S. 324th Street, an unknown suspect kicked a vehicle that was parked on the west side of the building overnight. The kick damaged the driver’s door and a footprint was seen on the car. No suspect information available.
