Man Carrying Two Guns and a Koran Arrested at Disney Park

Screen Shot 2016-01-28 at 12.21.20 PMAt DisneyLand Paris today, a man was arrested trying to enter the compound with two handguns and a copy of the Koran, according to The Daily Mail. X-ray machines detected the gun before the man was able to enter the park and he did not resist when being arrested.

The man, who is reported to be 28 years old, was allegedly traveling with a woman. There are conflicting reports on whether or not the woman has been found and detained.

Jean-Luc Marx, Prefect of the Seine-et-Marne district, said, “I want to underline that the Disney security services and police reacted immediately, and made sure the man was taken out of harm’s way, if indeed he ever intended to harm anyone. We don’t know at this stage.”

The parking lot outside of DisneyLand remains closed.

This is a developing story and details will be added as we learn them. Thank you.
