STONY BROOK, N.Y. (AP) - A man accused of bringing a gun to a Long Island university campus to threaten his ex-girlfriend has pleaded not guilty to weapons and menacing charges.

Joseph Bryan Lloyd’s bond was set at $100,000 at his arraignment Wednesday. His lawyer’s name isn’t immediately available.

Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota says the 31-year-old Lloyd forced his way into an office in Stony Brook University’s Social and Behavioral Sciences Building in October 2014. Lloyd’s ex-girlfriend was a graduate student there.

Police said the Brooklyn man confronted her with the gun, demanded to look at her cellphone and fled after examining it.

Officers chased him into some woods. They said he tossed the weapon on the ground while running.

Lloyd was arrested then but indicted only recently, after a lengthy investigative process.
