Stabbing arrest

On Tuesday Springville police arrested Jordan Willey Wood, 21, who’s accused of stabbing a man on Sunday.

Wood, also known as Montel Showtime, reportedly stabbed the man at a neighbor’s house. Wood is charged with aggravated assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

Sex assault

Provo police arrested Edwin Trejo Avila, 21, on Tuesday on charges that he sexually assaulted a woman while on a date with her.

According to police, the woman thought they were going to a movie on Monday night, but instead Avila took her to a church parking lot and tried to rape her. She fought off the assault, and then Avila reportedly locked the doors so she couldn’t get out and drove to American Fork. The woman was able to call 911 and Utah Highway Patrol troopers saved her.

Avila was booked into the Utah County Jail on charges of kidnapping, object rape, attempted rape, simple assault and forcible sexual abuse.

Stolen credit cards
