Home / National News / Man Charged After Attempted Kidnapping in Utah


(SANDY, Utah) — Police formally filed charges on Wednesday against the man accused of the attempted kidnapping of a five-year-old girl in Utah last week.

Tory Morley, 48, allegedly broke into a home in Sandy, Utah, on Nov. 7 and grabbed the girl from her bedroom.

The girl’s parents woke up during the kidnapping, and after finding their daugter’s room empty, they confronted Morley outside their home and rescued her.

Morley fled, but was later located in a neighbor’s home and taken into custody.

The Sandy Police Department said Wednesday that Morley has been charged with one count of child kidnapping and one count of burglary — both felonies. He also faces one count each of criminal trespassing in a dwelling and interference with arresting officer.

Morley is currently being held on $2 million bail.
