News Release
Stabbing Suspect Apprehended Fleeing from the Scene (Photo) - 06/06/21

On June 6th, 2021 at approximately 0045 hours, the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety (GPDPS) Dispatch Center received a 911 call of an adult male who had been stabbed and was being taken to Three Rivers Medical Center in a private vehicle. The location of the incident was said to be the 1400 block of Rogue River Hwy. As GPDPS Police units responded to the scene, Dispatch advised the suspect had fled on foot and a description was provided. 

The suspect was located on East Park St by patrol units arriving to the area; he was placed in custody and identified as Thomas Edward Bair.  A GPDPS Detective responded to assist in the investigation of this incident, which appears to have started as a verbal altercation. The victim, a 33-year-old Grants Pass resident, was treated by TRMC staff for what appears to be non-life threatening stab wounds.

Once the investigation was completed, Bair was transported to the Josephine County Jail and lodged on the listed charges. The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety asks anyone who was a witness to this incident to please call (541) 450-6260 and reference Case # 2021- 24889.
