Blotter: Police find assault suspect

Denton police were able to track down a 43-year-old man who allegedly caused a woman to be hospitalized recently.

Shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday, police were dispatched to the 2200 block of Stella Street for a domestic disturbance call. Denton police said upon the officer’s arrival, he discovered a 33-year-old woman laying on the ground and complaining of chest pain.

According to reports, while the officer called for help, the female was able to provide a direction of travel for the person she said assaulted her. Once the direction and suspect description was broadcast over the police radio, officers were able to locate the suspect.

The woman, according to reports, was taken to Texas Presbyterian Health Denton for treatment. The man, police said, was charged with aggravated assault family violence and brought to the city jail.
