Blotter: Woman reports threats from husband at store

A woman told police that she didn’t feel safe returning home to her husband after the two argued in a local store Saturday.

The wife said she told her husband at about 2 p.m. that she needed to run errands and go grocery shopping.

According to the police report, she said that her husband insisted he go with her because he didn’t trust her.

The wife told police that her husband has a history of physical abuse, so she agreed to his demand.

After a verbal argument on the way to the store, the wife said, she dropped her husband off at their residence and then proceeded to finish shopping.

The wife told police that while she was shopping, her husband walked up to her and accused her of buying something for another man.

The husband then left and began sending threatening text messages, the wife reported.

Police accompanied the woman to her residence, but her husband wasn’t home. Police confiscated the husband’s shotgun, according to the police report.

Denton police searched for the husband, but he didn’t return home Saturday.
