MEDFORD, Ore. — The Medford Police Department (MPD) is investigating after someone vandalized the Jackson County Republican headquarters on Main Street in Medford overnight.

The responding officer reported that at least one of the windows appeared to have been punched, with a hole larger than the size of a fist in one window. Both outer windows were shattered, but MPD said that an inner set of the dual-paned safety glass remained intact.

MPD has not said that they believe the attack to have been politically or idealogically motivated. A car parked in the area was also vandalized during the night with the glass shattered, though investigators cannot yet confirm if the two incidents were related.

According to a post on the Jackson County Republican Party Facebook page, they estimate that the vandalism happened around 2 a.m. Pictures posted by party officials showed what appeared to be blood around one of the holes in the glass.

"This has sadly become the norm in Portland but it shouldn’t be in Medford," the post said, apparently alluding to recent clashes between right and left-wing protesters in Portland.

The Jackson County Republicans are seeking donations, saying "Donate today to stand up to the bullies," although the web page does not indicate that proceeds will necessarily be used for repairs.

This is a developing story, and NewsWatch 12 will update the article with more information as it emerges.
