A 37-year-old man from New Jersey was arrested after attempting to enter St Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan with two gasoline cans Wednesday night, police say.
Church ushers stopped the man at about 8 p.m. and notified nearby officers with the NYPD Critical Response Command, who took him into custody.
Authorities say he drove to St. Patrick's, parked in front of Saks and took two gas cans and lighter fluid from the car into the cathedral where he was stopped.
The man's intentions were not immediately clear. The incident came two days after the fire at Notre Dame cathedral in Paris.

I’m sure its just another misunderstanding.
If they know if age, and where he’s from...why don’t they know his name?
Really? His intentions weren't clear?
if = his
Has a lighter that needed filling ?
They know hi name, they just cannot tell you, because you are racist.
We are doomed. [Facepalm]
“The man’s intentions were not immediately clear”. It is not immediately clear how this “journalist” has a job. The guy was BBQing for the homeless. Nothing to see here!
I know - can you believe it!!??
Obviously his car ran out of gas, and he was going to ask directions to a gas station.
See, see! Trump’s anti-Muslim tweets again!
“There’s somethin’ goin’ round here,
what it is, ain’t exactly clear...”
Only a “man” ? Wow, with a description like that...
If those were the new kind of gas can he’d have been hours trying to figure out how to pour it out.
I'll bet he wasn't there collecting for the Red Cross.
Perp is ‘Marc Lamparello’.
Guy claimed he was out of gas and took a short cut through a cathedral with the cans and lighter fluid immediately after the burning of Notre Dame... but then what would the lighter fluid be for? He was desperately in need of home grilled chicken? Fail on the cover story.
Construction accident averted.
That's some first-class investigative journalism you're looking at there.
