Gun-Toting Man With Koran Arrested at Disneyland Paris

Arrest comes soon after last November’s terrorist attacks

French police have arrested a man who was toting two guns at Disneyland Paris, the BBC reports.

The 28-year-old also had a copy of the Koran, as well as a box of ammunition.

According to the BBC, the man was stopped at an entrance to the Hotel New York at the theme park. Metal detectors were set off by his bag as he was entering the hotel.

The arrest comes shortly after the deadly terrorist attacks in November, which left more than 100 people dead. France is still in a state of emergency following those attacks.

On Thursday, police also arrested a woman at the park who was thought to be the man’s girlfriend, but they released that woman and are still searching for the girlfriend, the BBC reports.

According to one police source, the suspect said he had the weapons for self-protection, and the investigation into the situation does not indicate terrorism.

“During a routine security screening checkpoint at one of our hotels, weapons were discovered in a guest’s luggage through our x-ray machine. The police were immediately notified and the individual was arrested,” Disneyland Paris vice president of communication and public affairs Francois Banon said in a statement. “We continue to work closely with the authorities, and the safety and security of our guests and cast members is our utmost priority.”
