Other reports

1400 block of Broadway Street — A woman called police on Monday to report a man punching her 23-year-old boyfriend.

Police interviewed both parties when they arrived on the scene about 3:30 p.m. The boyfriend said he wanted to press charges, but no arrests were made, according to the police report.

1200 block of East Hickory Street — Police determined that a woman's phone and wallet were forcefully stolen on Sunday before she reported the incident Monday.

According to a police report, the woman's debit card had also been used. The report did not provide a reason why the woman reported the incident in the police department lobby a day after the alleged theft.

No arrests were made.

Officers first responded to a report of an "irate roommate" causing a disturbance in the house, according to a police report. The roommate pushed the caller and knocked over a bookshelf, the report said.

Police later arrested a man on an outstanding Denton County warrant for allegedly driving with a suspended license. But it's unclear whether that man was the person causing the disturbance.

He was taken to Denton City Jail.
