A robber Tuesday wanted more than the few dollars a victim had on his person at the time of the incident in the 1700 block of Teasley Lane, according to a police report.

The Denton Police Department is investigating an aggravated robbery after a 911 caller Wednesday reported her tenant was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday evening outside the undisclosed apartment complex.

Police spoke with the tenant Wednesday who said around 8:05 p.m., he was outside looking at his phone when he felt a hand hit the back of his head. The report says this caused him to drop his phone, and he then felt a pistol on the back of his head.

He reported hearing a male voice and giving his assailant the few dollars he had. According to the report, the robber said, “That’s all you’ve got?”

The victim was able to get away quickly enough from his assailant to get inside his apartment and close the door behind him, police reported.

Officers are continuing to investigate and are looking for any surveillance footage of the incident.
