A knife-wielding man who allegedly wanted to kill Michael Strahan was arrested at ABC Studios in New York City on Tuesday.

The frightening incident happened when the unnamed individual showed up at the network’s complex around 8 a.m., where Strahan films “Good Morning America.”

According to the NYPD, the man attempted to gain access to the building by trying to stab a police officer who was working as a security guard.

He later told cops he was intending to kill Strahan yet.

The suspect remains in custody with charges still pending.

A spokesperson for ABC called the cop a “hero” for tackling the man, and added, “It was a scary situation but thanks to the fast actions of NYPD the situation was quickly under control.”

Strahan has not commented on the altercation.
