Witnesses at the Eureka Village Apartments on Tuesday said a man who was dragging a woman out of his apartment appeared to be defensive and not aggressive, according to a police report.

A 911 caller told the Denton Police Department around 6:24 p.m. that a man and woman were fighting in the apartment complex parking lot after she broke his window. When officers arrived, they saw a man restraining a woman, but he then let her go.

The woman told police she was upset and angry, and wanted to grab her phone from the man’s apartment so she could leave. Asked how her phone got into his apartment, she said she grabbed him through a broken window and her phone fell into his home.

Police saw she had scratches on her body, which she reported was from when he dragged her downstairs.

According to the report, neighbors told police that she kicked in the man’s apartment window and climbed through. They reported hearing yelling and then saw him forcing her out, holding her in a defensive manner.

The tenant told police he was inside his apartment when she knocked and then he heard the sound of glass breaking. She then allegedly climbed in through the window and he tried to get her out. He estimated it would cost $600 to replace his broken window.

The woman was arrested and charged with criminal trespass and criminal mischief between $100 and $750. Their relationship to each other wasn’t specified in the report.
