GRANTS PASS Ore. (KPTV) – The Grants Pass Police Department is asking for the public’s help locating an attempted murder suspect after a woman was found “bound and severely beaten into unconsciousness,” on Tuesday.

Officers responded to the 2100 block of Shane Way just before 7 p.m. on reports of an assault. The victim was found in critical condition and taken to a local hospital for treatment, Grants Pass P.D. says.

Police have identified the suspect as Benjamin Obadiah Foster, 36, of Wolf Creek, last known to be driving a dark blue 2008 Nissan Sentra 4-door with Oregon license 407EDX. Foster fled the scene following the assault, officers say.

Anyone who sees Foster or knows his whereabouts is asked to call 9-1-1 and reference Grants Pass case #23-3570.
