Patient attacks nurse with knife
Officers responded to Denton Regional Medical Center Friday evening after a patient grabbed a knife from a nurse and attacked her with it. The nurse said she was attending to the 45-year-old Flower Mound man when he grabbed the knife and swiped at her with it, grazing her arm. Then the man raised the knife over his shoulder, she told police, and came at her with it. She fled the room and shut the door, notifying security officers on-scene and calling 911. A reported for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon was taken and an investigation is continuing.
