Suspect arrested in Medford stabbing

Owing to quick efforts of detectives and patrol officers overnight, Medford police arrested a man Tuesday believed to have stabbed a 44-year-old man in the thigh during an altercation under the Ninth Street footbridge.

Andrew Charles Davis, 44, was arrested Tuesday morning on felony assault and weapon-use charges surrounding a stabbing reported at 10:30 p.m. Monday, according to Medford police.

By the time officers arrived on scene, police said, the suspect had fled, and officers focused on rendering aid to the victim’s wound on the upper thigh until paramedics arrived.

Detectives identified Davis as the suspect, determined that he and the 44-year-old male victim were acquaintances, and that the stabbing occurred during an altercation.

Medford police instructed later patrol unit shifts to be on the lookout for Davis. At 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, a patrol officer spotted Davis walking in the 1100 block of West Main Street.

Davis was held in the Jackson County Jail Tuesday afternoon on $110,000 bail on felony charges of second-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon, as well as a misdemeanor charge of second-degree disorderly conduct.
