MIDVALE — Police Sunday afternoon apprehended a man wanted in connection with a stabbing in Springviille that left another man with serious injuries.
Springville Police Lt. Warren Foster said the incident began at 10:45 p.m. Saturday with a chase involving Andrew Holloway, 33, his former girlfriend and her new boyfriend. The chase ended when the girlfriend and new boyfriend ran into their home and called police, Foster said.
Later, the couple learned that someone slashed the tires and shattered the window of new boyfriend's truck, Foster said.
Early Sunday, Foster said Holloway broke into the home and a fight ensued. He said police were called at about 6 a.m., and when they arrived they found the new boyfriend with stab wounds to the face, head and chest area. Foster said the injuries were serious but not life-threatening. By the time police arrived, Holloway had fled in a Volkswagen Passat, Foster said.Comment on this story
Springville police asked other law enforcement agencies to help locate Holloway, and the car was found in the area of 8200 S. 245 West in Midvale at about 9:15 a.m., said Unified police detective Chuck Malm.
Malm said the vehicle was unoccupied but still warm when police arrived. Authorities believed Holloway was still in the area and set up a containment around a home. Holloway came out about 2 p.m. after police used “tactical operations” and was taken into custody. Police say Holloway suffered a K-9 bite in the incident.
Foster said the woman has an active protective order against Holloway.
