Blotter: Police charge suspect with assaulting man

Comments () A Text Size

A couple driving home after midnight Monday told Denton police that they were being tailgated by a man who followed them to their home in the 2300 block of Mercedes Road.

The couple did not know the man, who began cursing at them and then punched her husband in the face, the wife told police.

The husband fought back while his wife called 911, according to the police report. When an officer arrived, the suspect was getting back into his car to leave.

The 23-year-old suspect, police said, thought he had been cut off on the road and followed the car. Police charged the man with assault and transported him to the city jail.
