SAN ANTONIO – A man accused of robbing a Family Dollar on the North Side and kicking an employee in the throat has been arrested, according to records with the Bexar County Jail.

Guadalupe Sampayo, 37, was charged with robbery following the incident on Aug. 16, records show.

San Antonio police said the suspect walked into the store in the 5200 block of Blanco Road, not far from Jackson Keller Road, and grabbed items from the shelf.
