Blotter: Police investigate robbery at local apartment

Denton police are investigating a robbery that occurred in the 900 block of Bernard Street on Thursday night.

Police said a man called authorities from a roommate’s phone after two men came to his apartment and demanded drugs at his front door.

According to reports, the first suspect produced a small, semiautomatic weapon and demanded drugs while the second suspect had a small red knife.

The victim, a 21-year-old man, said he told the suspects he didn’t have any drugs.

The two men pushed the victim down on a couch and went though his apartment anyway, police said.

The suspects, according to reports, fled the scene after going through the contents of the victim’s apartment and taking his smartphone and checkbook.

The victim sustained no injuries and the case is under investigation, police said.
