A woman and man were arrested Friday night after Denton police officers responded to a call about a domestic disturbance in the 200 block of Avenue F, according to police report. 

A caller tipped off police to the domestic disturbance, saying a man was on top of a woman hitting her, the report said. 

Officers reportedly heard shouting and a possible altercation down the street. Police contacted and detained the two individuals, who became "very combative," according to the police report. 

Upon making contact with the 19-year-old man and 20-year-old woman, at least one officer drew a gun. Police said that the male suspect was detained a second time after "pulling away" from an officer searching him for weapons, and that the female suspect grabbed the gun-wielding arm of an officer.  

Both were arrested and taken to the city jail on charges of interfering with public duties.
