On July 10, the Memphis Police Department (MPD) responded to a scene at Kimbrough Tower Apartments, in block 100 of Kimbrough Place.

The woman was found with several cigarette burns on her body, police said.

Mann told the woman he booby-trapped the door so she couldn’t leave.

When Mann left to go to a store, the woman realized the door hadn’t been tampered with, so she ran outside, court documents showed.

Justin Mann was arrested and charged with domestic violence and false imprisonment.
