BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) – Police have charged a West Haven teenager with threatening to kill a Stratford girl after she declined his request to be his prom date.

Eighteen-year-old Trevon Malik Avery was arrested Friday on charges including threatening, harassment and breach of peace. The Connecticut Post reports that a judge ordered Avery under house arrest, except when he has to go to school.

Police say Avery sent the 17-year-old girl threatening texts – including one with a picture of him pointing a gun – after she broke up with him and declined his prom invitation Thursday.

Police say Avery told them he was only joking and the gun wasn’t real.

In 2014, a Milford teenager fatally stabbed a 16-year-old girl at their high school after she refused his prom invitation.
