Blotter: Man hospitalized after girlfriend stabs him with scissors, report says

A 26-year-old man was hospitalized Sunday after his girlfriend allegedly stabbed him with a pair of scissors at a south Denton home in the 2800 block of Country Club Road, according to a police report. 

The man's injuries were not life-threatening, and he has since been released from the hospital. The girlfriend, meanwhile, would not open the door for police officers when they tried to contact her. 

The officers decided against forcing entry into the home, the report said, and no arrests were made.
