WEST JORDAN, Utah ( ABC4 ) — A woman has been taken into custody on Wednesday after West Jordan police received a 911 call reporting that she refused to leave a home and was armed with a knife.

Det. Dirk Petersen with the West Jordan Police Department says that dispatch received a 911 call from a woman Wednesday afternoon who reported that a woman would not leave her residence and was armed with a knife. The victim reportedly was able to escape to make the call to the police, and she was later transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
