A man reported to Denton police Wednesday that he was assaulted by one of two men named Justin.
The victim said he was in a bar in the 800 block of West Eagle Drive at about 11 p.m. Tuesday and two men he knows who are cousins and both have the same first name began arguing. He said he told them that if they didn’t stop, management would throw them out. He turned his back and one of them hit him on the head with a pool cue. He passed out and awoke on the floor. One of the Justins helped him up and said it was the other Justin who hit him. A friend gave him a ride and became concerned because he didn’t seem coherent.
The friend took him to a hospital emergency room, where a doctor told him he had “global amnesia.” He doesn’t remember much else about the incident, he said.
East McKinney Street — A woman reported Wednesday that she just learned her 17-year-old daughter was assaulted and sexually assaulted by a 25-year-old man recently. The girl explained bruises on her face and body as being soccer injuries at the time, she said.
But the girl recently admitted that the man, a friend of her brother whom she has been dating for about three weeks, routinely calls her bad names and forces her to have sex with him.
He was angry one recent night, she said, and he would not let her out of his car. She said he took her to his sister’s apartment and beat her, then locked her in a closet for hours. Then he let her out of the closet, beat her and called her bad names again and sexually assaulted her, the girl said.
She said he finally allowed her to return home but threatened to kill her if she told anyone.
100 block of Jenny Lane, Lincoln Park area — The father and sister of a man told a Denton County sheriff’s deputy Wednesday that someone had broken into his home and stolen some of his property.
The man was critically injured in a traffic accident that killed his wife and child, according to a sheriff’s report.
He was in a coma for 60 days and his relatives were routinely going by his home to check on it.
When they checked Wednesday, they discovered that someone had crawled in a window and had taken a 42-inch television set, a gaming console, a box full of jewelry, a double-barrel shotgun and a lawnmower, which had been in a shed.
