Grants Pass Police jailed a man last night for attacking his stepfather at a home in the south part of the city.

The Police Department reports officers responded to a domestic disturbance at a residence in the 400-block of West Harbeck Road on Tuesday around 6:40 p.m..

Police said a man called 9-1-1 to report that his 22-year-old stepson shoved him multiple times with force and struck him with closed fists, causing substantial pain. They said the caller did not require medical attention, but he wanted to press charges.

Upon arrival, officers interviewed both parties and the stepson admitted to making physical contact with his stepfather. The cause of the family altercation was not disclosed, but a woman at the home stated she would testify against the suspect in court, if necessary.

The suspect was lodged at the Josephine County Jail for 4th-Degree Domestic Assault and Physical Harassment. He was being held without bail.
