Police have arrested a man who appeared to be texting pictures of himself holding an assault-type rifle to a woman he doesn't know.

The Stamford Advocate reports that a woman reported receiving the texted photos, once of which showed a man pointing an assault rifle at a camera and another showed him holding a gun with a high-capacity magazine.

The unidentified woman said she did not know the man or he sent the message.

Police recognized a Stamford man, Nickson Nikollaj, in the photo and he was charged with threatening and harassment

Nikollaj told police the pictures were taken while he was on vacation in Kosovo. He also said he intended to send the photos to a friend, but mistakenly sent them to the woman.

It wasn't known on Tuesday morning if he's represented by a lawyer.
