LEHI, Utah — A man was hospitalized and a woman was jailed after Lehi police responded to an assault call on Friday night in the area of northeast Lehi.
Jeantiel Livingston with Lehi City police told KSL that when officers arrived, they found the male victim with multiple stab wounds. They reportedly began life-saving measures until other emergency responders arrived. The victim was taken to a hospital in an ambulance.
“Right now it is believed that the female stabbed the male,” Livingston said. The female suspect was booked on aggravated assault charges.
In a press release, police said both parties lived in the home. The male is in his 60s and the female is in her 30s. When police arrived, they found the female suspect in the home with “a large amount of blood on herself and her clothing.” She was also checked by medical responders before she was taken into custody by Lehi City police.
An investigation continues, however, Livingston said no further information will be provided by police until at least Monday.
