Unified Police on Wednesday arrested the last of four suspects in the Aug. 22 stabbings of two men in Magna.

UPD confirmed that Cody Johnson, 26, was taken into custody about 8 a.m. at a Kearns residence by police officers and Adult Probation and Parole agents acting on an anonymous tip.

Johnson was arrested without incident and booked into the Salt Lake County jail on suspicion of two second-degree felony counts of aggravated assault.

Three codefendants had been arrested earlier in the case: Jeremy Crowther, 23; Derrek Andrews, 23; and a 16-year-old female juvenile.

The male victims, ages 30 and 28, were reported to be in serious and fair condition, respectively. Both were expected to recover from their wounds.

The altercation allegedly began when the victims pulled into the driveway of a home near 3200 South and 7700 West and saw a crowd gathered in the front yard. The victims confronted the crowd, an argument ensued and escalated to a fight that culminated in the stabbings.
