A man with a sword and an ax entered the New York Times building in Manhattan on Nov. 17, 2022, authorities said.

According to the Associated Press, New York Police Department officers responded to a call about a man with a knife in the Times’ lobby shortly after noon. Danielle Rhodes Ha, the head of external communications for the Times, told the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker that the man asked to speak with “a reporter” at the front desk, but didn’t specify a particular reporter, desk or beat.

When building security barred the individual from entering, he calmly handed over the weapons and waited for police to arrive, the AP reported.

The man also had a bag containing a small folding knife and mace canister, according to The New York Post. The unidentified man was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.

Rhodes Ha told the Tracker that the incident was resolved quickly and peacefully.

The NYPD did not respond to requests for further comment.
