STAMFORD, Conn. -- It was almost midnight New Year's Eve Saturday when police responded to a city doughnut shop call for help about someone having what looked to be a"semiautomatic weapon," according to the Stamford Advocate.

The person with the gun was a 21-year-old city man later identified as Andres Sevilla, according to the Stamford Advocate. He is alleged to have taken the gun from his waistband then laying it on a table at the 450 Main St. business, police told the Stamford Advocate.

Police arriving there took the gun, which turned out to be a pellet gun, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Sevilla was charged with brandishing a facsimile firearm, threatening, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest and he was held in lieu of a bond of $10,000, said the report.
