Police make domestic-violence arrests

Seven people were arrested Thursday on various domestic violence-related charges during a citywide sweep, officials said.

Medford police and Jackson County Community Corrections officers fanned out across the city looking for more than 30 people wanted on warrants tied to previous domestic violence charges, Medford police Sgt. Brent Mak said.

"This coincides with October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month," Mak said. "We want to shine a light on the problem of domestic violence."

Officers visited 27 residents throughout the evening and made seven arrests.

The suspects were wanted for infractions such as not participating in their court-mandated anger management classes or drug and alcohol treatment and not keeping in touch with their parole or probation officers, Mak said.

Arrested were Kevin Lonnie Hawk, 28, Kenneth James Hawk, 31, Paul M. Davidson, 20, Thomas L. Bagwell, 30, Ronald Marks-Coe, 29, Matthew Ryan Brees, 24, and Randy Quinton, Araque, 28.

In addition, two people were arrested on non-domestic-violence-related charges. These people happened to be at the scene when officers visited a residence and were found to have warrants for their arrest, Mak said.

They were identified as Tedero Toe Vaeono, 27, and Rachel B. Hahn, 45.
