- At Disneyland Paris, a man was arrested for carrying two firearms, ammo, and a copy of the Koran.
- Police also arrested a woman who was traveling with the man.
- It is unknown at this time what their motives were, but the park remains open for now.
Disneyland Paris guards stopped a gunman carrying two weapons and a copy of the Koran inside a park hotel, officials said.
No one was injured when the gunman and his female accomplice were arrested Thursday.
The man’s bag — packed with two low-caliber handguns, a box of ammo and the religious text — set off security alarms as it went through an X-ray machine at the Disney-owned New York Hotel, park officials and police said. The Manhattan-themed resort is about a 10-minute walk from the theme park.
Hotel security called cops, who arrested the man, François Banon, the vice president of public affairs and communication for Disneyland Paris, told the Daily News.
“We continue to work closely with the authorities, and the safety and security of our guests and our cast members are our utmost priority,” Banon said.

Cops later arrested an unarmed woman who traveled with the man to the Happiest Place on Earth.
The man — a 28-year-old European — was not known to police or intelligence, French media reported.
No other details, including the pair’s possible motive, were immediately available.
The park and the hotel remained open after the arrests. Each year, about 10 million people travel to Disneyland Paris, which is among Europe’s most-visited tourist attractions and sits just east of the French capital.
France remains under a state of emergency since a series of synchronized terror attacks killed 130 people across the city in November. The attacks, carried out by ISIS fighters, targeted a soccer stadium, a music hall and a row of trendy cafes.
Disney installed metal detectors at its Florida and California parks in December amid rising fears of gun violence. The U.S. locations also stopped selling toy guns and banned adults from wearing costumes.
“We continually review our comprehensive approach to security and are implementing additional security measures, as appropriate,” Disney said in a statement at the time.
