Denton police halted a reported assault at a home in the 2800 block of Fort Worth Drive late Sunday.
A caller reported seeing a woman being beaten by a man at the residence, and told police they saw the man tackle, punch and pull the female, who was screaming, back into the house. When officers arrived, no one would open the door.
Finally a man came to the door but refused to leave the doorway. When he started retreating back into the home, officers detained him in handcuffs. They found no one else in the house.
Because of two witness statements, scratches found on the suspect, and blood inside and outside of the home, the man was arrested, according to police.
