WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

A Wichita Falls woman was arrested on Monday morning for allegedly assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest. 

According to the WFPD, around 9:30 a.m. officers were called out to the 700 block of Star Avenue in reference to a woman that would not leave a property on that block. 

When officers arrived, the property owner said a woman was hiding on the property and they believed she was stealing things from the property. 

The woman, later identified as Lisa Ann Baker, 37, was found running towards a tree line on the property, according to WFPD. 

When officers called out to Baker, she was seen throwing two bags into the tree line before turning around and coming back towards police. 

After a struggle, Baker was detained at the scene on suspicion of theft. While one officer went to retrieve the bags, the other officers called out for assistance. 

According to police, Baker slipped out of her handcuffs and head-butted an officer in the face, breaking the officer's glasses.

Baker continued to resist and after kicking the vehicle door and window of a police unit, she was put in leg restraints, according to police. 

EMT's were called to the scene to check Baker out for a small cut on her face near her left eye. She was taken to the Emergency Room at United Regional before being booked into the Wichita Co. Jail. 

Baker has been charged with assault public servant and resist arrest, search or transport. As of Tuesday afternoon, she remained behind bars on a $11,500 bond.
