Blotter: Man tells police he was robbed, not to make report

A 24-year-old man told Denton police that two armed men forced their way into his home in the 200 block of Tanglewood Street on Wednesday night, according to reports.

The man reported that one suspect was armed with a handgun and forced his way into the house. He was followed by a second suspect who was armed with a shotgun, the victim said.

Police said the man reported that his Social Security card, an unknown amount of cash and his computer were taken. The man also told police he was struck on the back of the head with the shotgun, according to reports.

A police spokesman said the man didn’t have any injuries and refused treatment. Reports show the victim repeatedly told police he did not want to file a report but “only inform” the police of the incident.
