A man was arrested after police said he assaulted two people walking their dogs near a park in Moab on Saturday morning.

Police say the two residents, a 53-year-old man and 68-year-old woman, were walking their dogs near Bullock Cross Creeks Park when they found suspect Alex Kensell living on an empty lot with an active fire camped.

After they informed Kensell that he had violated a city ordinance, he retrieved a backpack and attacked both victims, using a stun gun on the woman and stabbing her multiple times before the man pushed him away, police said .

Police responded, providing medical care to the victims and taking Kensell into custody.

The female victim was taken to a local hospital in serious condition and then flown to Utah Valley Regional Hospital for advanced care, where she was in stable condition as of Saturday afternoon.

Based on preliminary investigations, officials believe Kensell recently arrived in Moab from another state and said there were no other threats to the public related to the incident.
