A man who had luggage containing two firearms and ammunition was arrested Thursday at the entrance to a hotel near Disneyland Paris, and investigators are looking for a woman who was with him, police said. The 28-year-old Paris man was arrested as he tried to go through security at Disney’s Hotel New York, just outside the Paris-area amusement park, said Michel Le Prevost, deputy chief of criminal police of the French city of Meaux.
The man also was carrying a Quran, Le Prevost said. He told police during questioning that he was carrying the guns for his own protection, according to the deputy chief. Police also are looking for a woman who was with him, Le Prevost said. Police retracted an earlier statement that the woman was in custody. It’s not immediately clear what, if anything, she was accused of. FULL REPORT
