Denton police arrested a 21-year-old man Thursday morning for attempted sexual assault in the 300 block of Fry Street, according to a police report.

County jail records list him as female, but a Denton police affidavit notes he is transitioning and goes by he/him pronouns.

The report shows that the man and a 20-year-old woman who he was in a relationship with were discussing trying out different things in the bedroom. He allegedly initiated a sexual act Wednesday afternoon, but she said no, according to the report. He didn’t stop and a police spokeswoman said the two were pushing each other, but no other physical altercation occurred.

The woman left the house with a friend before things progressed further, the report says. A friend of the man called the police at around 10:30 p.m. and said he was acting irrationally.

After speaking with the man and the woman, who said she tried to fight him off when she didn’t want to take part in the sexual act, police arrested the man. He was taken to Denton City Jail but was later booked into Denton County Jail.

He is charged with attempted sexual assault and is being held in lieu of a $7,500 bond.
