UPDATE

ALTUS, OK (KSWO) - Altus police say the man accused of threatening a woman with a knife in the parking lot at the Walmart on Main Street has been arrested. 40-year-old Anthony Burns is charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Police say the Altus office of probation and parole identified Burns from Walmart's surveillance video.

It happened around 1 p.m. on Saturday. The woman was not hurt.

The Altus Police chief says the woman was by herself in the parking lot, and they believe the suspect targeted her. They say the woman did not know the suspect.

The suspect was last seen running south toward the Atwoods. That's after a witness to the assault stepped in and chased the man.
