Parties on Saturday night and early Sunday in unincorporated Denton County left several people injured from altercations.
Deputies responded to the 5000 block of U.S. Highway 377 in the Krugerville area early Sunday to reports of stabbings.
They found two people with non-life-threatening stab wounds and a woman who had been beaten. They said they were sitting outside a mobile home when a car pulled into the community and a male passenger began shouting racial slurs.
One of the victims and the man began fighting. The man ran to a nearby trailer and grabbed a knife. He returned and stabbed one of the men and hit the woman when she tried to intervene, the report states.
Then another man tried to stop the fight and was stabbed as well, the report states. One victim suffered wounds in his left bicep and left shoulder and was taken to a hospital emergency room.
The second victim suffered a knife wound in his right bicep but refused medical treatment, according to the sheriff’s report.
The property manager said she heard there was a fight and went outside to investigate. She saw the suspect running naked toward the group yelling that he was going to stab someone, she said. She went inside and hid in a closet.
The suspect left in a car with another man before deputies arrived. They found the car in another mobile home park.
The suspect wasn’t there, but the driver said the suspect came running back to the car, saying someone was going to kill him and then someone stuck the barrel of an AR-15 rifle in the car window as they were leaving. He said the suspect had been using drugs. A search continues for the suspect.
Buttercup at Cactus streets, Justin area — Deputies responding to a fight call found an injured man lying in the roadway early Sunday. He appeared to be intoxicated. His parents arrived and they also appeared to have been drinking, according to the report.
According to witnesses, they all were at a nearby party and were asked to leave. They did but returned. The son pushed down a woman and was beaten by several people, according to the report.
4000 block of Cheyenne Trail, Krugerville area — Deputies responding to a fight report at about 3:40 p.m. Saturday learned there had been trouble at a Cinco de Mayo party.
One of the guests got out of control and was asked to leave, according to the report. There was an altercation among several people and the host and one of the guests was beaten.
4000 block of Cheyenne Trail, Krugerville area — Deputies took a report from a man at another party early Sunday in the area. About 25 people had been invited to a party, but three uninvited guests also showed up. The host told them to leave. They did but later returned.
When the host stepped outside to ask them to leave again, they rushed him. He suffered a broken nose, a broken tooth and an eye that was swelled closed by the time deputies arrived.
The intruders had left by that time.
600 block of East Hickory Street — A man told Denton police in an online report that a woman he had sex with once is harassing him.
He said that after being with him, the woman called and said she might be pregnant. He urged her to have a pregnancy test.
She came to his home and they took four pregnancy tests, all of which came back negative, according to the report.
But she called again and said she was not convinced that she was not pregnant. He and a friend took her to a hospital emergency room to have a pregnancy test.
Once there she refused to have the test. He asked her what it would take for her to have another test and get the problem behind them and she accepted a $500 gift card.
But now she is calling and texting him because she received a $316 hospital bill and she wants him to pay it.
He has told her to leave him alone, but she won’t, according to the report.
