LITTLE ROCK, AR - A local man has been arrested for a May robbery and beating at a shoe store on the city's west side.

Mario D. Johnson, 21, was picked up by police yesterday. He's being held on $25,000 bond.

Johnson is charged with aggravated robbery and battery, both felonies, in a May 18 incident at the Shoe Carnival store on Chenal Parkway.

Police say in that incident an employee was beaten but managed to hold on to the store's deposit bag. When others tried to help her, the suspect was reported to have lifted his shirt to show he had a gun.

According to Johnson's arrest affidavit, he admitted to the robbery and beating but denied having a gun.

No money was taken in the incident.
