Medford man faces assault charges in suspected stabbing

Police have charged a Medford man with two counts of first-degree assault for his suspected stabbing of two 22-year-old men at Hawthorne Park shortly after 10 p.m. Tuesday.

Daniel Dwayne Logsdon, 27, was arrested Wednesday on a parole violation and a charge of failure to register as a sex offender after investigators linked him to the stabbing.

Police added the assault charges Friday afternoon and forwarded the case to the Jackson County District Attorney's Office.

Logsdon is still jailed without bail on the parole violation, and the other charges carry bail of $2.25 million.

Police suspect that Logsdon, who was at the park with two 17-year-olds, a boy and a girl, got into a dispute with the pair of 22-year-olds. A fight erupted in which Logsdon pulled a knife, police said.

One of the victims with a knife wound to his abdomen walked to Royal Avenue near Spring Street before collapsing. When police arrived, he told them his friend was still in the park near the pool with stab wounds to his arm and abdomen. The two were taken to Rogue Valley Medical Center, where both required surgery but were recovering.

Police found and talked with witnesses and gathered evidence that led them to Logsdon, who lives in the 1200 block of Morrow Road, Medford.
