Blotter: Police investigate robbery

Comments () A Text Size

A bloody man showed up on a woman’s doorstep in the 3800 block of Camelot Street about 5 p.m. Thursday saying he had been beaten and robbed, police said.

The 18-year-old man said he had ridden the bus home from school to the stop in his neighborhood and while walking to his house, he was approached by a man shouting obscenities at him. The man then began hitting the teen with his fists, according to a news release from Denton police.

The teen fell to the ground but the assault continued for several more minutes before the assailant left with another man who didn’t take part in the assault, officials said.

Police said the alleged victim recognized the man but couldn’t remember his name.

The teen sustained a badly cut lip, numerous abrasions and complained of pain to his lip and head, Officer Shane Kizer, spokesman for Denton Police, reported. In addition, the teen reported he was missing $75 in personal items.

A family member arrived and took the teen to seek further medical assistance. No arrests were made and the incident remains under investigation.
