Denison Police said one man was arrested on a felony family violence charge Sunday evening after he allegedly attacked his girlfriend with a brick and pushed her into a window.


Lt. Mike Eppler said officers were dispatched to a residence in the 300 block of MacArthur Drive shortly before 7:30 p.m. after a relative of the victim called to report that the woman had been assaulted. Eppler said the 28-year-old woman told officers she and her boyfriend had been in a verbal argument, before the 26-year-old man became physically violent.


“She had said that she had gotten into an argument with her boyfriend and during that argument he threw a brick at her and hit her in the head with a brick,” Eppler said. “She said he then pushed her back and into a window, causing the window to shatter.”


Eppler said the woman was not seriously injured and refused medical attention. The Denison Police sergeant said the boyfriend was taken into custody at the scene without incident and was charged with aggravated assault, family violence — a first-degree felony.


“If someone is in a situation that appears to be getting out of hand, then they need to get away from that situation as quickly and as safely as possible and immediately call 911,” Eppler said.
