Blotter: Denton police report two assaults on otherwise quiet Christmas

Denton police responded to two unrelated assault calls involving three victims on an otherwise quiet Christmas Day, according to police reports. 

Police received the first call about noon, when a 39-year-old man said his ex-wife slapped him at his south Denton home in the 3900 block of Overlake Drive. Police took the report but did not make any arrests. 

About 10 p.m. on the opposite side of town, a 24-year-old man was accused of assaulting his mother and girlfriend at a home in the 3300 block of Brook Street. He had to be physically restrained, according to the police report. 

That man eventually was arrested and taken to Denton City Jail on a charge of assault family violence.
