A 27-year-old man was arrested on warrants Saturday night in the 2400 block of Louise Street, according to a police report. Denton police said the warrant stemmed from a domestic violence incident reported on March 18.

When police arrived at the residence on March 18, the suspect was no longer on scene, Denton police spokeswoman Khristen Jones said. However, Jones said officers observed that a physical disturbance occurred in the house, while the female victim reported that she had been choked by her boyfriend.

Police later arrested and charged the man with assault family violence/impeding breath or circulation, according to an arrest affidavit. Jones said that police were able to connect the victim with resources for help.
