Blotter: Man arrested following assault report

A 64-year-old man was arrested Tuesday and charged with assault and interference with an emergency call in the 1500 block of Creek Avenue after he reportedly hurt his 56-year-old wife and took away her cellphone during an argument.

The police report said the suspect “caused [his wife] pain,” but it did not elaborate on the nature of the assault. When police questioned the suspect, he was not truthful about the incident, the report said.

He was later booked into Denton City Jail.
