Blotter: Report: Resident uses fist to prevent break-in

A Denton man managed to turn back a trio of suspects attempting to gain entry into his residence Thursday. According to the police report, the men tried to kick in the door of the home in the 1000 block of West Prairie Street.

Once the door was forced partially open, the resident managed to punch one of the men between the eyes, knocking him down, the report said. The men fled moments later, the report said.
