Police say a homeless man stabbed another transient multiple times in an argument in a Medford greenway. Sgt. Kerry Curtis says the 32-year-old victim was likely saved by the Medford Fire Department and Mercy ambulance crews. He was taken to Rogue Regional Medical Center for surgery and is expected to recover.
The stabbing happened Saturday afternoon, and the 61-year-old was tracked Sunday to a camp site where he was arrested on assault charges. He's held in the Jackson County Jail on $2 million bail.
The Mail Tribune reports he has previous convictions for assault in 2009 and 2004.
