Following is a sample from the Federal Way police log May 18-24.

May 19

Cryptocurrency loss: At about 6:16 p.m. near the 700 block of SW 337th Street, a woman was on her computer and clicked on a suspicious link. She was directed to a fake Microsoft employee and gave the suspect her financial account information to secure it. The woman checked her cryptocurrency account, Coinbase Pro, and noted she was missing approximately $60,000 worth of cryptocurrency. The woman was advised to change her account information and contact her banks.

Man on school bus: At about 7:43 p.m. near the 1000 block of S. 332nd Street, a man was found on an unoccupied Federal Way school bus. The man failed to coherently answer simple questions and appeared unable to care for himself because of his mental state. He was involuntarily committed.

May 20

Employee held at gunpoint: At about 2:33 p.m. near the 4600 block of SW 320th Street, an employee of the Chevron gas station was approached by a young, unknown man. The suspect pulled out a silver semi-automatic handgun and demanded cash from the till. The suspect then grabbed the employee by the wrist when she said she did not have a key to the till. The suspect then ran away, getting into a dark gray Chevy Camaro.

May 21

Suspect steals sprayer: At about 10:42 a.m. near the 35700 block of 16th Avenue South, a suspect forced open the maintenance storage room overnight and stole an airless sprayer and painting mask. The reporting party saw the suspect on the surveillance camera. The suspect was stopped by police and admitted to stealing the sprayer.

Stolen cash: At about noon near the 2020 block of S. 320th Street, a victim called 911 reporting an unknown suspect implied he had a gun and had stolen approximately $250 from the business’s cash register. An area recording captured video of the suspect getting on a Sound Transit bus. No injuries were reported and the suspect has not yet been identified.

Rite Aid robbed for drugs: At about 3:14 p.m. near the 2100 block of SW 336th Street, a man approached the pharmacy counter at the Rite Aid store and said he had a gun. The man demanded Percocet pills and the pharmacist gave the suspect eight bottles of pills. The suspect fled the scene in a silver minivan.

Woman shot with paintball: At about 2:50 p.m. near the 27600 block of Pacific Highway S., a woman waiting at a bus stop along Pacific Highway South reported an unknown passenger in a car had shot her with a paintball when driving by. The woman had a minor injury to the arm and was splattered with pink paint. Shortly after her report, a similar incident occurred near Sacajawea Middle School and the person reported the car’s license plate number. The suspect has not yet been located.

May 22

Boyfriend assaults, robs partner: At about 5:37 a.m. near the 28400 block of 18th Avenue South, officers responded to the Soundview Apartments for a physical domestic violence incident involving a gun. The victim was assaulted and robbed by their boyfriend, who was armed with a handgun. Officers established probable cause for first-degree robbery and the suspect eventually gave himself up to police without incident. The suspect was booked into King County Jail.

Stolen truck: At about 12:10 p.m. near the 1500 block of S. 356th Street, an unknown suspect entered a locked, fenced parking lot and stole a Ford F350 pickup truck by driving it through a locked rolling chain-link fence gate. The owner of the lot recognized the suspect as a man who had previously inquired about the truck the day before.

Shot fired after argument: At about 7:29 p.m. near the 31700 block of 50th Lane SW, a victim got into an argument with an unknown suspect, who then pulled out a pistol and shot it into the ground. The victim and several witnesses declined to provide statements to police, therefore the case is inactive.

May 24

Man damages police car: At about 12:37 a.m. near the 27200 block of Pacific Highway South, an officer was flagged down by an employee of the gas station. The employee said sometime overnight, an unknown suspect damaged the police car that had been parked at the gas station. Video surveillance shows a man running up to the police vehicle, jumping on the hood and kicking the windshield, causing it to crack.
