Blotter: Man alleges he was threatened at knifepoint

Denton officers responded to a call in the 3500 block of southbound Interstate 35E Friday night after a man reported himself as the victim of an aggravated assault.

Police said the 36-year-old man said he was told at knifepoint to remove himself from an area business’s property.

Reports show the business was closed, so only one side of the story was heard. Police did not locate the alleged suspect, a cashier at the business.
