A self-storage manager was robbed and pistol-whipped during a robbery Sept. 11 at a U-Store-It self-storage facility in Memphis, Tenn.

Memphis police arrested and charged 37-year-old Theotus Barnett with aggravated robbery and especially aggravated kidnapping. Barnett is being held in Shelby County Jail on $75,000 bond.

According to police, customers found the manager of U-Store-It at 3040 Austin Peay on the floor behind the counter. She was bleeding from the head. The self-storage manager told police a man posed as a customer then attacked her with a handgun. He forced her into a breakroom, demanded she turn off the recording system then stole money from the cash register.
