SLCPD Detectives and SWAT Team Arrest Aggravated Robbery Suspects
SALT LAKE CITY — Three people are in custody after an aggravated robbery injured a 17-year-old.
This investigation started at 1:25 a.m. on Sunday, August 28, 2022, when SLC911 received information from the victim reporting two men assaulted him at gunpoint and stole personal items and his car at a hotel located near 200 North Jimmy Doolittle Road.
During the investigation, officers learned the two suspects confronted the victim, as he walked into a hotel room with a woman.
Detectives have confirmed the two men and a 17-year-old female acted in concert to steal the man’s property.
Officers searched the area for the suspects but did not locate them.
The Salt Lake City Fire Department treated the man on scene for minor injuries.
Around 7 a.m., officers found the man’s stolen vehicle near 1100 West 600 North.
After stopping the car, officers took the driver, a 17-year-old minor, into custody.
Through the investigation, officers and detectives developed information leading them to locations of the suspects.
With the assistance of the SLCPD SWAT Team, detectives served a court-authorized search warrant at a home near 850 West 300 North and safely took 28-year-old, Anthony Penegar into custody.
Shortly after, detectives served another court-authorized search warrant at a home near 3100 South 900 East with the assistance of the SLCPD SWAT Team.
Members of the SWAT Team safely took 29-year-old Jayson Boal into custody.
Detectives booked Penegar and Boal into the Salt Lake County Metro Jail on charges of Aggravated Robbery and Aggravated Kidnapping.
Detectives booked the 17-year-old in the Salt Lake Valley Detention Center for her involvement in the robbery.
Charges are only allegations, and every arrested person is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
The Salt Lake City Police Department is not the custodian of record for jail booking photos. Utah Code 17-22-30 mostly prohibits the release of jail booking photos. Generally, a jail booking photo can only be released by the custodian of record after a conviction or when law enforcement determines the person is a fugitive or an imminent threat to a person or public safety. In Salt Lake City, the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office is the custodian of record for jail booking photos.
A photo taken during the investigation is being released.
There is no other information available to release at this time.
