The Sandy Police Department and the West Jordan Police Department are looking for 34-year-old Jesse David.

They believe he was involved in an early morning stabbing in Sandy that led to a SWAT situation in West Jordan on Saturday.

“About 4:30 this morning, we received an aggravated assault call at 8870 South State Street,” said Sgt. Jason Nielsen of the Sandy Police Department.

Police say it was after David allegedly stabbed a woman. They aren’t saying where on the victim’s body she was hurt.

“We don’t want to give those details out yet,” said Sgt. Nielsen. “We are considering this a domestic situation.”

The woman was transported to the hospital in stable condition.

After responding to the scene where the stabbing occurred, police then received a tip David was hiding out inside a home on Palladium Drive in West Jordan.

“SWAT was called out,” said Sgt. Nielsen. “Containment was again set up. We considered this a barricaded subject because the information we had was that he was possibly inside this residence.”

After hours of trying to establish contact, police determined David wasn’t inside.

“We did breach the front door,” said Sgt. Nielsen.

After executing a search warrant and searching the home, police are now asking the public for help.

“We’re now just asking the public that if they see him to call either the non-emergency dispatch phone number of 801-799-3000 or 911,” said Sgt. Nielsen.

Police do not want anyone to approach David. They’re considering him armed and dangerous.

“We are concerned because we do believe he was just involved in the stabbing,” said Sgt. Nielsen.

Police say this is an ongoing investigation.

At this time, they’re not publicly releasing details on what may have led up to this stabbing.
