Blotter: Man’s injuries seem to baffle himself, police

At about 11:50 a.m. Saturday, a 25-year-old man was discovered in his home after he was apparently assaulted, but he could not recall the circumstances that led to his injuries.

Police were responding to a report of an unsecured residence in the 1700 block of Teasley Lane, where a caller had told authorities about a broken window with blood on it.

Two officers entered the residence to check on the welfare of any occupants. They discovered blood throughout the apartment and a resident lying in bed upstairs. He had been assaulted but could not recall what happened.

He was taken by ambulance to Medical City Denton hospital to have his injuries treated. The report did not specify the extent of his injuries.

Police processed the apartment as a potential crime scene and completed an assault report.
