A man fleeing police Sunday stole a vehicle with a woman inside in Federal Way, and crashed the car in Milton, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff’s spokesman Stan Seo gave this account:
A 24-year-old man appears to have been involved in a home invasion robbery, and in the process of fleeing Federal Way police, he carjacked a Dodge Charger from outside a store at 5:30 p.m. at South 288th Street and 51st Avenue South.
The driver of the car was inside the store at the time, but a 23-year-old female passenger was still in the car. The man kidnapped her as he stole the vehicle.
Federal Way police chased the car, which crashed at 23rd Avenue and Milton Way. No one was hurt.
Officers took the man into custody. They found the woman safe.
