SAN ANTONIO - Police on Saturday arrested a former Burger King employee suspected of robbing the fast food joint where he was once employed.

The San Antonio Police Department's Robbery Task Force apprehended 48-year-old Julius Cuellar on the city's West Side around 6 p.m.

Police said Cuellar and an unknown person robbed a Burger King off of Potranco Road on Feb. 8 and held employees at gunpoint.
