GP Police Department Investigation Led to Arrest of Woman for Felony Assault

A Grants Pass Police Department investigation has led to the arrest of a woman on a felony assault charge.

According to the Police Department, officers arrested 59-year-old Marjorie Rose Anderson in the 2200-block of Rogue River Highway on Thursday.

No details about the investigation have been disclosed, but Anderson was lodged at the Josephine County Jail for Felony 2nd-Degree Assault and she was being held without bail.

Anderson has at least four arrests on her record since September 29th when deputies found her sitting in a ditch near the intersection of Upper River Road and Azalea Drive Cutoff. She walked away from deputies and was eventually arrested for Disorderly Conduct.

More recently, Anderson was arrested Monday for shoving another woman to the ground in downtown Grants Pass. The incident was witnessed by several people and resulted in her arrest for Physical Harassment and Disorderly Conduct.

Jail records show Anderson was also arrested October 28th for Criminal Mischief and October 25th for Offensive Littering.
