A 18-year-old man whom police believe orchestrated a plan to kidnap another teen, stab him, duct tape him and dump him near Magna, has been arrested.

SANDY — Police say an 18-year-old man orchestrated a plan to kidnap another teen, stab him, duct tape him and dump him near Magna.

Eduardo Micheal Miranda-Carmonawas arrested and booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault resulting in serious injury.

On Tuesday, Miranda-Carmona recruited several people to help him assault and kidnap a teenager — his former roommate and a former co-worker, according to a jail booking report. They waited until the boy got off work. As he exited his building, two teens attacked the boy.

"The victim was beaten and stabbed with a knife and held at gunpoint. The victim had his hands tied behind him and was placed in the back of his own vehicle," the report states.

When the juvenile refused to hand over his credit card and PIN number, he was stabbed in the shoulder multiple times, according to the report.

Miranda-Carmona and others drove the kidnapped boy to Magna where they attempted to use his bank card at several locations, then drove him to Tooele and Stansbury Park where he was beaten again, police say.

The boy was left in the Tooele County area where he was found "covered in blood and injured" by the Utah Highway Patrol.

Police have arrested at least one other juvenile, according to jail records. After arresting Miranda-Carmona, investigators went through his phone and allegedly found messages talking about his "mission," planning the kidnapping and robbery.
