Police have made an arrest in connection with a group who stole from a sporting goods store and assaulted an employee on the way out.

Police have arrested Chimayne Talley on charges of assault and felony theft in connection with a recent theft from the Academy Sports location on Gallatin Pike.

A group of men and women entered the store.

Police said one of the group went and got a bottle of pepper spray. The others went around the store and picked out what they wanted, mostly Nike and Under Armour clothing.

When the group tried to leave the store, a loss prevention worker for Academy Sports tried to stop them.

Police said Talley took the pepper spray, sprayed the loss prevention worker in the face and ran off with the group.

Police developed Talley as a suspect when this happened in mid-June. He was arrested over the weekend.
