Medford Man Stabbed Christmas Eve
A Medford man was treated and released for a stab wound to his leg Christmas Eve after being assaulted and robbed while walking along Merriman Road.
Police were dispatched at 8:39 p.m. to the report of a man yelling for help in the 2500 block of Merriman. Officers found the 27-year-old victim, but the suspects were no longer on the scene.
The victim said he was approached by two white males he didnít know, who engaged him in conversation, then suddenly began assaulting him, then ran off, taking his bag that contained miscellaneous property.
Two independent witnesses saw the altercation and reported the suspects ran north on Merriman. Witnesses could only describe the suspects as white males in their early 20ís.
Anyone with information about this incident should contact the Medford P.D. at 541-774-2230.
