PARK CITY — Two people have been arrested in connection with a Monday stabbing in Summit County, authorities said on Tuesday.

Steven D. White, 42, and Amber Lynn Lands, 37, were booked into the Summit County Jail, according to a news release from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

White was arrested for investigation of aggravated assault and aggravated burglary. Lands was arrested for investigation of burglary, according to the release.

Sheriff’s office personnel received a call just after 4 a.m. Monday from a 63-year-old man reporting he had been stabbed and beaten by a man wearing a mask, the release says.

Investigators learned that the man responded to a Craigslist ad for a woman offering house cleaning services. The woman, later identified as Lands, showed up at the home, located in the Pinebrook addition just off of I-80 near Jeremy Ranch, at about 1 a.m., according to Summit County Sheriff’s Lt. Andrew Wright. Lands and the man agreed to meet at 1 a.m., according to Wright.

At some point while Lands was there, she allegedly texted White to come inside the home, and then the assault and stabbing took place, according to Wright and a jail report.

Lands and White then fled the area. They also allegedly stole some methamphetamine from the home, according to the jail report.

They were located and arrested in South Salt Lake about noon Monday, according to the report.

The man’s injuries were not life-threatening, but Wright said it is likely he will need some significant facial reconstruction surgery. The man was still in the hospital and listed in fair condition as of Tuesday afternoon, Wright added. KSL.com has chosen not to name the man.

Investigators have not been able to interview the man for more information since he has been in the hospital, Wright added.

Lands and White admitted that they were at the man's house and that White had assaulted the man, according to the jail report. Both Lands and White said White assaulted the man because the man had sexually assaulted Lands, the report states.
