COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) Authorities say a man was arrested after he carried an assault rifle and a semi-automatic handgun into the lobby of a Colorado Springs hotel.

The Gazette reports officers responded early Saturday to a call that an armed man was acting in a threatening manner and pacing the lobby of the Staybridge Suites just south of the Air Force Academy.

Police say Jose A. Lujan was holding the handgun and also had an AK-47 assault rifle with two fully loaded high-capacity magazines. The handgun was reported stolen out of Albuquerque, N.M.

No other information was released.
