PRICE, Utah – Two people were stabbed and some officers sustained minor injuries during an incident in northwest Price, according to police.

Officers responded to the area near 200 North and 100 West around 6 a.m. Wednesday.

The two victims were transported to a local hospital, where Price Police officials said one was later flown in a medical helicopter to Provo. 

A witness led police to the suspect who was found hiding in the backyard of a nearby home, armed with a bloody knife.

The suspect “ignored multiple commands from officers and attempted to flee the area,” according to a Facebook post from the Price Police Department.

After deploying a taser, officers were able to take 29-year-old Colton Samuel Powell into custody.

Representatives from at least seven law enforcement agencies assisted during the incident, according to Price Police.

The Carbon County School District sent out an alert that notified parents about the large police presence in the area.

Officials said the two victims were last known to be in stable condition.

Powell was transported to a trauma facility in Salt Lake County, police said, by local EMS and deputies with the Carbon County Sheriff’s Office.

During the incident, officers sustained minor injuries, but additional details were not immediately available.

The incident was under investigation.

Officials said there was no longer a threat or danger to the community as it relates to the incident.

Formal charges for the suspect have been referred to the Carbon County Attorney’s Office, according to police.
