Denton police are seeking two men who allegedly robbed the Mayhill Mart around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, according to Officer Ryan Grelle, department spokesman.

Grelle said one of the men entered the store alone, then left and got into a white pickup. The second man, Grelle said, then entered the store and allegedly committed the robbery.

A store clerk told police that the suspect did not display a weapon but told her he had a gun. The suspect obtained cash from the register and a carton of cigarettes. The suspects both left in the white pickup, Grelle said.

Other reports

500 block of Londonderry Lane — Early Tuesday morning, a Denton police officer conducted a warrant service at a residence in the 500 block of Londonderry Lane, according to a police report. The officer had made contact with the suspect on Aug. 31 and found that she had warrants under an assumed name.

The officer made contact with the suspect, who verbally identified herself, and she was placed under arrest for local warrants, the report stated. On the way to jail, the woman claimed she was lying about her true identity and gave a false date of birth and Social Security number, according to the report.

Once inside the jail, the suspect became increasingly hostile and started banging the back of her head against a wall and then jumped up and began punching a brick wall in the jail, the report stated.

The jailer attempted to restrain the woman, who then allegedly punched the jailer, resulting in a cut about three inches long under the jailer’s eye.

Medics were called to the jail and treated the jailer for her injuries. The woman was charged with failure to identify fugitive, four local warrants and assault on a public servant, the report stated.
