Man recovering after stabbing

A Medford man allegedly stabbed by his girlfriend has been upgraded to fair condition, hospital officials say.

Paul Richard Bowman, 42, was transported to Rogue Valley Medical Center shortly before noon on Monday after Jennifer Lynn Crawford, 30, reportedly plunged a knife into his upper chest at their apartment in the 900 block of Royal Court.

Crawford will be arraigned this afternoon in Jackson County Circuit Court on Measure 11 charges of first- and second-degree assault, as well as a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest.

Witnesses say they called police as Crawford continued to fight with Bowman in their apartment's courtyard. Both Bowman and Crawford fled the scene when police arrived. Crawford was eventually subdued by police after the use of a stun gun.
