Police arrest man accused of attempted kidnapping at Emery High School



CASTLE DALE — Emery County deputies arrested a man after responding to a report of an attempted kidnapping during a middle school track meet Friday.

A statement from the Emery County Sheriff’s Office says the incident occurred at Emery High School during a middle school track meet. Deputies received the report of an attempted kidnapping “on the north side of the Armory” at the school.

The sheriff’s office says a young girl was grabbed and restrained by a man, but once the man realized other people were witnessing his actions, he released the girl. Deputies located the man at the scene, sitting alone on the bleachers, and took him into custody, according to a statement.

The man is being held without bail at the Emery County Jail for investigation of kidnapping.

“I would like to thank the citizens who helped protect and comfort the victim and preserve the scene until law enforcement arrived. Once again it goes to show how important our citizens are to law enforcement. Please be aware of your surroundings,” Sheriff Tyson Huntington said.
