PLEASANT GROVE/LINDON, Utah, July 19, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — A shelter-in-place order was issued for parts of Pleasant Grove and Lindon Thursday morning as police searched for a suspect in the area.

A notification was emailed to residents and shared on social media, advising those near the Lindon border, near 200 East in Pleasant Grove to stay inside and lock their doors because of “a suspect at large in the area.” Reverse 911 calls were also made to that area.

At approximately 1:45 p.m., Lindon residents and Orem Police who were helping with the search located the suspect fleeing the search area. He was arrested after a short pursuit.

Lindon Police Chief Josh Adams said Lindon officers responded to a 911 call at 622 N. 200 East at 4 a.m. Thursday.

“They discovered a female who had been stabbed multiple times; she was taken to the hospital by paramedics, where she was treated,” Adams said.

She has now been released from hospital, Adams said.

The suspect in the stabbing is the victim’s domestic partner, Adrian Johnson, 41, Adams said. Johnson fled the area as officers were arriving. Later that morning a woman living in the area went to her garage and found Johnson inside her vehicle.

“Johnson attempted to take her car keys, was not successful, he then fled that address,” Adams said.

Police believed Johnson was still in the area; K-9 units were dispatched to assist with the search.

The investigation is ongoing.
