A 25-year-old woman told Denton police over the phone Tuesday afternoon that two women jumped her late Monday at a gas station near Dallas Drive and Teasley Lane, according to a police report.

Police are investigating an assault report after the woman recounted an experience at a gas station. The report says she stopped at the Texaco on Dallas Drive around 9:40 p.m. when a man she knows saw her and stopped by to talk to her.

The two were sitting in her car arguing when two women entered her vehicle and began to punch her, according to the report. A Denton police spokesperson said the women were acquaintances, but the victim wasn’t positive she knew the names of the assailants.

The caller told officers she had a bruise under her left eye and another on her forehead, the report says. She also said she felt pain on the back of her head, but couldn’t see if she had visible injuries there.

The report doesn’t mention any further involvement of the man the caller was speaking with before the assault occurred.
