A 25-year-old man was arrested yesterday in front of ABC’s âGood Morning Americaâ studios after he allegedly pulled out a knife. He later told police he went there to âkill Michael Strahan,â the former football great and TV personality, police sources told FOX411.
âThe suspect went to the entrance of ABC studios and demanded that security let him into the studio. He was denied entrance, at which time he showed a knife. He [then] attempted to stab a security guard,â a police source said.
The suspect, Andre Johnson, later told police during a debriefing that âhe was there to kill Michael Strahan,â a source said, clarifying, âwhen he displayed the knife he did not say that.â
Johnson is homeless and was still in jail as of Wednesday morning.
He was charged with assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, a police source told us.
