A man who lives in the upper Valley was arrested in Brownsville after police say he robbed the Kohls department store.
Police had responded to the call at Kohls on Thursday afternoon after security reported that Marin Santana was inside the store and took some items without paying for them. When he was stopped outside, Santana assaulted the security officer by poking him in the eye and hitting him in the back of the head. Santana, who lives in Mission, was able to get away but a Cameron county sheriff deputy stopped Santana in Harlingen and took him back to the store where he was identified as the robber.
