MIDVALE — Three people were injured, including a minor, and two suspects are in custody following a stabbing in Midvale.

According to Officer Quin Wilkins with the Unified Police Department, a call came in at approximately 3:35 a.m. of a possible stabbing with reports of children screaming near 6880 S. 700 West.

When police arrived, they found three victims, two adults and one child.

According to a police affidavit, 35-year-old Jose Leonardo Chirinos Perez and an unidentified 32-year-old man fled the scene.

At approximately 3:30 a.m., police found the suspect’s vehicle and initiated a traffic stop near 650 W. 7200 South, where they were able to take the two suspects into custody.

According to the affidavit, Perez was armed with a tire iron and knife.

Wilkins said during their investigation, they learned this was likely a domestic violence-related incident involving an ex-boyfriend entering an apartment and injuring three people.

Although, Wilkins said it wasn’t immediately clear what relation the second suspect had to the people involved.

The case is under investigation and there is no risk to the public.

The three victims were transported to the hospital: the two adults with minor and moderate injuries and the child with minor injuries.
