Suspect in custody after domestic violence incident in Federal Way

Officers responded to the incident at the Sunset 320 apartments around 3:30 p.m. on May 15.

One suspect is in custody after violating a felony domestic violence order in Federal Way on Friday afternoon.

Just before 3:30 p.m. May 15, officers responded to 911 reports of a possible assault between a male and female, according to Federal Way police Cmdr. Kurt Schwan. The incident occurred at the Sunset 320 apartment complex, located in the 32100 block of 19th Avenue SW.

When officers arrived, they discovered a felony domestic violence order violation had occurred. On-duty SWAT members also responded to the scene, but only assumed perimeter positions, Schwan said.

The female victim was treated by South King Fire and Rescue personnel for minor injuries. The male suspect barricaded himself in the apartment, but was communicating with on-scene law enforcement negotiators, Schwan said. The suspect is now in custody.

Reports of smoke from the apartment prompted a response from SKFR, but the cause of the fire is unknown at this time. Federal Way police personnel were successful in bringing this incident to a peaceful resolution, Schwan said.
