Waco police said two separate people were seen shoplifting from the Dollar General on W. Waco Drive Tuesday evening.

Police said during the first incident a woman took various clothing items and a soda. She argued with an employee when asked to bring the items back into the store and pay for them. The woman pushed and assaulted the employee before running away. 

Police have identified her as Angela Lynn Ball. She was arrested on July 25.

During the second incident, a man went to the back of the store and placed unknown items into his shorts. An employee confronted him as he left the store, and the man ran outside. As the employee chased him, the man began to pull a gun from his waistband. Police said the man got on a BMX-style bike and drove east on Waco Drive.

Police said it is not known what the man took from the store, and they do not know his identity.
