SANDY — Sandy police are asking for the public's help in finding the fourth of four people accused of kidnapping a man, stabbing him and dumping him in Tooele County.

On Oct. 10, police believe Eduardo Micheal Miranda-Carmona, 18, orchestrated a plan to kidnap a 39-year-old former co-worker, according to a Salt Lake County Jail report. Miranda-Carmona recruited three others — including two juveniles — to help him carry out his plan, according to police.

Police say they waited until the man got off work, and as he exited his work, 652 E. 9400 South, two teens attacked him.

"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.

The man had his hands bound with duct tape, and his stab wounds were not life-threatening, according to police.

When the man 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 man 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 man was left in the Tooele County area where he was found by the Utah Highway Patrol "covered in blood and injured" walking on I-80.

Miranda-Carmona was arrested a week later, booked into jail and charged in 3rd District Court with aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault, unlawful use of a bank card and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Two juveniles have also been arrested.

Police are now asking for the public's help in finding the fourth man. Based on surveillance video from the ATM machines, the man is described as 18, Caucasian, about 5 feet 9 inches tall with brown hair that was pulled into a bun. Anyone with information can call police at 801-799-3000.
