The Disneyland Paris suspect and his female partner have been arrested after the man allegedly attempted to enter a hotel in the park complex with two handguns and a Quran on Thursday, The Associated Press reported.
No one was hurt in the incident and the park remained open after the arrests. They come as France remains on edge and under a state of emergency after Islamic extremist attacks around Paris in November that killed 130 people.
The suspect, a 28-year-old man, was detained at the New York Hotel, part of the Disneyland complex, according to a police official who wasn't authorized to be publicly named. The man's motives for trying to enter the hotel with weapons were unclear.
His female partner was detained later at the park, the official said. The woman didn't appear to be armed, and no other suspects are currently being pursued, the official said.
Employees at the New York Hotel and several others around Disneyland Paris said they continued functioning as usual after the arrest.
Officials with Disneyland Paris and the French Interior Ministry had no immediate comment about the arrest.
The park, east of the French capital, closed briefly after the Nov. 13 attacks.
