Motel robbery

On March 20th at approximately 1000 hrs., a male agreed to meet a female at her hotel room in the 3500 block of Pacific Hwy E.  When he arrived and entered the room, he was confronted by the female and two other males.  One of the males was brandishing a knife and they threatened harm to the victim.  They had him remove his pants, and then bound his hands with an electrical cord.  The suspects forced the victim to provide his PIN number for his bank card and were able to remove money from his accounts.  The victim was able to break away from the suspects and flee to the office of the hotel where police were called. 
If you have any information on the pictured suspects, please notify Detective Lieutenant Thompson at 253-896-8287.

Woman comes home and finds another woman sitting on her couch

At approximately 1330 hrs., Fife Police were dispatched to a report of a fight in progress outside an apartment in the 6700 block of 20th St E between two females.  Officers arrived to find one female still present who reported that she was assaulted and robbed and the other female had run away.

The victim said that she returned to her apartment and found a screen removed from her front window and lying on the ground.  When she opened the door to her apartment, the other female, who she did not know, was sitting on her couch going through her belongings.  The suspect female said she just needed money and didn’t want any trouble.  The two began to struggle as the suspect female tried to run out the front door.  While trying to get away, the suspect bit the victim on the top of her head.   The commotion alerted two neighbors who came out of their apartments and tried to intervene.  One of them took a cell-phone photo of the suspect before she was able to get free and run away.  A police K-9 tracked the suspect for a short distance but the suspect was not located.

The suspect was described as a white female, approximately 5 foot 4 inches tall, 130 to 140 pounds, with dirty blond/reddish hair pulled into a ponytail.  She was said to be wearing a black jacket covering an army-pink camo sweater and blue jeans.  She was also wearing a white hat and had scabs on her face.

Anyone with information on the female pictured in the attached photo is asked to contact Detective Lieutenant Thompson at253-896-8287 or 253-922-6633.  Reference Fife Case #14-0770.
