Denton police have issued an arrest warrant in the assault and robbery of a 90-year-old woman at an assisted living center early Saturday morning.

Police issued an arrest warrant for Glenn Darrell Darden for aggravated robbery.

"I want him to be caught and put away," the victim, Elaine Truitt, said earlier this week. "He is not good for society and never will be."

Police said Darden came into Truitt's apartment at the Dogwood Estates Assisted Living Center, attacked her and stole two televisions and computer.

"He got up on top of the bed covers with his knees over my legs and held my arms back and started smothering me with a little pillow," Truitt said.

Both of Truitt's arms are covered in bandages. The man tore her skin when he pinned her against her bed.

"It is a low-crime area," detective Keith Martin said. "You are at a retirement home, and our victim is 90 years old. It takes a special kind of evil for a person to do this."

Truitt said the man entered her room through an unlocked door at about 3:30 a.m.

"I said, 'What would your mother think about you and what you are doing?'" she said.

Denton police said they've been to Darden's Corinth apartment but haven't been able to locate him. They've also found his car but he no longer owns the vehicle.

If you have any information, contact Martin at the Denton Police Department at 940-49-7961 or keith.martin@cityofdenton.com.
