Police: Iowa man threatened woman with photos

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa City man has been accused of threatening a woman through picture messages that show guns.

Iowa City police say 22-year-old Tahmir Wade Allen sent two separate photos in May to a woman who had a domestic abuse no contact order against him.

The first photo allegedly shows Allen pointing a handgun at the camera with his finger on the trigger. The second photo allegedly shows Allen with a long gun across his lap and his finger on the trigger.

A police complaint says a message attached to one of the photos threatens use of a gun if the woman reveals information about Allen.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports (http://icp-c.com/17ja0a2 ) Allen was arrested Monday. He has been charged with a stalking offense.

Records do not list an attorney.
