Cumberland resident Christopher Scott Cook was arrested Saturday at a Park Street business. He had allegedly been caught stealing from the business, and then assaulted employees when they tried to stop him. As police arrived, he was identified by store employees, but Cook tried to flee on foot. Police apprehended him, and he resisted arrest. He also tried to ingest a controlled dangerous substance. After a brief struggle, officers were able to place Cook in handcuffs. Charges are pending against him.
