Summit County Sheriff deputies have arrested a Salt Lake couple, after a Pinebrook resident said an encounter with the pair at his home turned violent early Monday morning, and he was stabbed and beaten by a male suspect wearing a ski mask.    The investigation is ongoing.

Sheriff’s Lt. Andrew Wright reported that they got a 911 call from the 63-year-old victim shortly after 4 a.m. Monday.

Officers learned that the victim had responded to a Craigslist advertisement from the female suspect offering housekeeping services.    She came to his residence at around 1 a.m.

Among recent incidents in the Summit County Sheriff’s report, a single-car accident occurred at one of the county’s projects on Kilby Road.

And a dispute between motorists could almost be called road rage—except it happened in a parking lot.

On the morning of August 23rd, an employee with the county Public Works Department reported that a vehicle drove straight through the new roundabout in front of Ecker Hill Middle School and hit a cement barrier on the other side.

According to the Sheriff’s incident report, a woman in Pinebrook last Wednesday reported a case of Criminal Mischief. She said that overnight, the car belonging to her teenage son had been wrapped in plastic. It was also covered with kitty litter and condoms.

The vehicle sustained no physical damage. The report said there were no leads and no suspects.

Later, on Sunday, a woman said she was defrauded after she went on and bought a tortoise. She said she made the purchase from an individual in Vernal and sent the suspect $350 to have the animal shipped to her.


Thursday afternoon just after three o'clock, Park City police responded to a 911 call at Snow Country Condominiums.  According to a press release from the city, a domestic violence suspect had barricaded himself in a room and was making suicidal threats.   Police safely removed the victim from the incident and the suspect was taken into custody just after five o'clock.   

Among the reports from local law enforcement, Summit County Sheriff’s deputies kept busy last week with a number of burglaries of unsecured vehicles.

Last week, on July 18th, a complainant in the Canyons area reported that while he was sleeping in his car, someone reached in his open window and stole his cell phone, which was attached to his windshield by a section cup.

Searchers in the High Uintas on Tuesday afternoon found the body of a Salt Lake Valley resident who has been missing for nearly a week.

The search located 66-year-old Ray Humpherys in the Middle Fork drainage area, about a mile and a half from where he had last been seen.

Summit County Sheriff Deputies arrested a suspect in the Newpark area for trying to break into two cars. One of those was a marked Sheriff’s vehicle. The suspect claimed to officers that he was confused.

The suspect was identified as a 34-year-old Salt Lake City resident, Journey Rose. Rose was arrested on Tuesday.

Lieutenant Andrew Wright said two deputies were notified by a passer-by that Rose was trying to get into their police vehicle. Lt. Wright said the vehicle was running, because some of their cars can now be started remotely, but it was locked.
