WEST JORDAN — Two men accused of singling out a registered sex offender and repeatedly stabbing him were charged Tuesday in 3rd District Court.

Dustin Ray Lewis, 26, and Brailosky Aguado, 25, allegedly stabbed the man six times at a home near 9100 S. 2700 West on Feb. 5 while telling him, "You deserve to die," and, "I knew it was you."

The men allegedly said "you're on the sex offender list" before attacking him.

The stabbing victim, who is listed as a non-compliant sex offender in Utah, eventually escaped the residence and took himself to a nearby medical center. He was later hospitalized at Jordan Valley Hospital for his injuries.

The man was convicted of lewdness involving a child, a class A misdemeanor, in 2001, according to court records.


The men allegedly said "you're on the sex offender list" before attacking him.

Lewis and Aguado were both charged with aggravated assault resulting in serious bodily injury, a first-degree felony. Lewis was additionally charged with illegal use or possession of a firearm, a third-degree felony.

An arrest warrant for Aguado was filed in court Tuesday. Neither man had been arrested as of Tuesday.

A third armed assailant joined in on the alleged stabbing, according to charging documents. No charges have been filed against that man, who is not identified in court records.
