A 29-year-old woman was arrested Tuesday afternoon in the 2500 block of Louise Street on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to a Denton police report.
Police were dispatched after a 30-year-old woman said her boyfriend’s sister was kicking the door to her home, trying to force her way inside.
The victim told officers she believed the suspect was going to shatter the door frame had she not opened the door, reports stated. After the victim opened the door, a brief argument ensued, then the victim tried to push the door closed again.
The suspect was able to force her way inside, however, and pulled the victim’s hair and scratched her neck before leaving, according to the report. These were the only reported injuries during the incident, a spokesman for the department said.
The suspect’s brother, 25, attempted to run out of the apartment, and his sister pulled a pocket knife from her waistband, according to reports. Fearing bodily injury or death, the report stated, the brother was able to push his sister back and run to a friend’s apartment. The suspect fled the scene but was caught and arrested, police said.
