  • A Medford man was arrested Monday six days after he allegedly attacked his girlfriend with a hammer and then attempted to stab her daughter's boyfriend.
    Gerald Schram, 62, was still lodged in the Jackson County Jail Tuesday afternoon on charges of second-degree assault, attempted first- and second-degree assault and fourth-degree assault.
    His bail was set at $1.06 million, jail records show.
    Schram allegedly attacked his live-in girlfriend in the 300 block of Haven Street on July 1.
    Medford police Lt. Mike Budreau said the woman received minor injuries.
    Schram then went to a nearby house where the woman's daughter lived and allegedly attacked her boyfriend with a knife and bat. He cut the man's finger, but was subdued and then left, police said.
    Budreau said Schram was later found on Oak Street, where he attacked the daughter's boyfriend a second time, this time with a shovel, causing a severe bruise.
    Later that day, Schram was spotted near Jackson Pool acting suspiciously and possibly watching children swim. Police arrested him after a chase, but he was released from jail the same day.
    Police took a report on the assaults two days later and arrested Schram at a Purple Parrot, 2742 N. Pacific Highway, on Monday.
    Court records show Schram also has open cases involving possession of a restricted weapon and DUII.
