WEST VALLEY, Utah — UPDATE: West Valley City Police have tweeted an update to this story that the incident may not have occurred as previously described, and may not have happened in West Valley.

A man was sent to the hospital to be treated for stab wounds after he showed up at work Saturday morning.

According to Lieutenant Amy Maurer with the West Valley City Police Department, crews were dispatched to the man's place of work after a security guard called them and said an employee had been stabbed on his way to work.

The man says he was pulled over in the area of 5000 South and UT-111 when a white passenger vehicle pulled up behind him. Two people exited the vehicle, and the victim was stabbed multiple times. Reportedly, nothing was stolen, and the two people got back in their car and left. It was at this time that the victim then went to work.

The man sustained injuries that were significant enough that authorities transported him to a local hospital for treatment.

Authorities are searching the area for the white passenger vehicle.
