Denton police were dispatched to a disturbance in the 1800 block of Bolivar Street at about 9 a.m. Wednesday and found two bounty hunters waiting outside a door.
The men said they were hired by a bail bond company to find a man who failed to appear for a court date in another county and showed their credentials, according to a police report.
The bounty hunters said they had traced the man to the Denton home. They said they knocked on the door and asked for the man, but three people refused to let them in and became increasingly aggressive.
One bounty hunter said he showed them a stun gun he was carrying but did not use it, opting to wait until police arrived, according to the report.
2200 block of West Windsor Drive — A Denton Parks and Recreation Department employee called police to report a theft Wednesday.

About $330 was reported missing, including the startup cash and the sales proceeds from the week before.
One employee said he was the last to leave the night before and that the safe had been closed, but he did not confirm that it had been locked.
He provided police with a list of employees who had access to the building.

The woman’s camera and cellphone, which were sitting on the center console, weren’t taken, according to the deputy’s report. She said the wallet contained about $20 in cash, a $30 prepaid debit card, her Michigan driver’s license and her family’s Social Security cards.
6100 block of FM1830, Argyle area — Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched on a report of a suspicious person Wednesday morning and found a naked man carrying a sword walking up a driveway.
The man told deputies that he had walked to a gas well site, where the neighbor who made the call reported that the man had climbed a water tank, according to a deputy’s report.
