Denton police responded to a handful of family violence calls throughout the day Sunday, one of which lead to an arrest.

After receiving a call for a disturbance in the 1600 block of West Oak Street at 2 a.m. Sunday, Denton police arrested a 23-year-old woman. She was booked on a charge of assault causing bodily injury, family violence, after police heard from a 23-year-old male victim, according to a police report.

A little after 3 a.m., officers were headed to the 1700 block of Bolivar Street, where they found a 39-year-old woman with minor injuries. The suspect, however, fled on foot before officers arrived, according to the report.

At 6 p.m. Sunday, officers were dispatched to the 3300 block of Brighton Drive. A 23-year-old woman reported that her ex-husband pushed her.

Another domestic violence victim came to the police department lobby on East Hickory Street to report family violence. According to the police report, the trouble began about 7 p.m. Friday and continued until 2 a.m. Sunday.

A little after 11 p.m., officers responded to a call from a 66-year-old man in the 9700 block of Amber Court. He complained, too, of a family violence incident that began about 6:30 p.m. and ended just before he called, according to the report.
