HOLLADAY -- A Holladay teen is recovering after being stabbed Tuesday night. Now police are looking for his attacker.

Unified police say the 16-year-old was walking near Olympus High School when another teen approached him and demanded money.

"Right after he made the demand, he stabbed the victim, and the suspect took off westbound -- we believe through this residential area," said Unified police Lt. Jason Johnson.

Police brought in K-9s to search the area but could not find the suspect.

The attacker is described as being 16 or 17 years old, about 6 feet 3 inches tall, with some facial hair. Police say he was wearing a green plaid, long-sleeve shirt.

If you have any information on the stabbing or know who the attacker might be, contact the Unified Police Department at 801-743-7000.
