The Irving Police Department has made several arrests in recent days related to domestic violence, indecent exposure, and indecent assault.

It encompasses various forms of abuse, including physical violence, sexual violence, threats, economic abuse, and emotional/psychological abuse, with varying frequencies and severity.
According to statistics from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 40.1% of Texas women and 34.9% of Texas men may experience intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner rape, and/or intimate partner stalking during their lifetimes.
