Utah Wife Arrested for Brutally Stabbing Man during Dinner in Apartment; Said She Protected Her Husband from Victim

A 23-year-old woman has been taken into custody by the police following an incident where a man was stabbed multiple times at a family gathering in Bluffdale.

A woman named Izabel Happold was arrested and taken to the Salt Lake County Jail on Friday morning. She is facing charges of aggravated assault resulting in serious bodily injury, obstruction of justice, intoxication, and domestic violence in the presence of a child.

According to Bluffdale police detective Carl Hamer, the incident occurred around 1:30 a.m. at Rockpoint Apartments on 15300 S. Porter Rockwell Blvd.

A family had gathered at an apartment for a birthday and Independence Day celebration when two men engaged in a heated altercation, fueled by alcohol, according to Hamer.

According to Hamer, there was a violent incident where Happold, who is married to one of the men involved, inflicted multiple stab wounds on the other man. The affidavit states that the victim suffered multiple stab wounds to his back and neck.

According to the authorities, there were seven children present in the apartment during the incident of the stabbing.

According to the affidavit, Happold initially informed the police that she had stabbed the man in order to defend her husband. However, she also acknowledged that she stabbed the victim before he started assaulting her husband.

According to Hamer, both men received medical treatment at the hospital for injuries that were serious but not life-threatening.

According to authorities, Happold concealed the knife in a nearby dumpster and subsequently presented it to the officers. Authorities also reported discovering numerous open alcoholic containers scattered throughout the residence. Additionally, Happold was observed consuming alcohol while engaging in conversation with the officers as reported by KSL News.

Happold was ordered to be held without bail, as stated in court documents. Hamer mentioned that once the stabbing victim is discharged from the hospital, there is a possibility of him being charged with aggravated assault for his involvement in the altercation that took place inside the apartment.
