Blotter: Denton police respond to armed robbery

Comments () A Text Size

Three men were robbed at gunpoint by intruders during a home invasion Wednesday night in the 2600 block of West Oak Street, police said.

Several items were stolen from the apartment before the robbers fled the scene, according to Officer Ryan Grelle, spokesman for the Denton Police Department.

Grelle said the caller reported that he and two men in the apartment were robbed by three people who entered the apartment. One appeared to have a 9mm handgun.

All three victims reported they had items stolen, and a fourth resident, who was not home, also reported several pieces of property missing.

There were no reported injuries. An investigation is underway, Grelle said.
