The New York Post reports a homeless man armed with a knife was arrested yesterday morning outside of “Good Morning America’s” studio after attacking an ABC employee and threatening to kill “GMA’s” Michael Strahan.
“There was an incident in Times Square, an individual lunged at one of our employees and was heroically tackled by a police officer,” ABC spokeswoman Heather Riley tells TVNewser.
“We understand the man was taken in for psychiatric evaluation. It was a scary situation but thanks to the fast actions of NYPD the situation was quickly under control. Michael was never in any danger.”
We’re hearing the incident happened quickly, and Strahan, who was on “GMA” yesterday, wasn’t made aware of the situation until later in the day.
