Sources told the NY Daily News that the man, Andre Johnson, showed up to the studio and demanded to be let in. When he was rebuffed, he returned carrying a knife and attacked a security guard.
Johnson was quickly arrested. At the station, he reportedly told police, "I was there to kill Michael Strahan.”
The “Live! with Kelly and Michael” co-host and “GMA” correspondent never saw Johnson and was not hurt, officials said.
Johnson was charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and menacing.
A homeless man armed with a knife was arrested on Tuesday outside the “Good Morning America” studio in NYC after he demanded to see Michael Strahan and then tried to stab a security guard.
