Michael Strahan reportedly threatened by homeless man

Wednesday July 2nd, 2014

A man was arrested Tuesday after he attempted to gain entry to Good Morning America's Times Square studio, saying he "was there to kill Michael Strahan," according to multiple reports. 

More from the New York Daily News:

Security men told Andre Johnson, 25, to take a hike when he first demanded to see Strahan, authorities said.

But Johnson returned with a knife — and tried to stab a security guard with the blade.

He was rebuffed and quickly arrested by cops, officials said.

Strahan, the former Giants defensive end and current co-host of ABC's "Live! With Kelly and Michael", was not aware of the incident until he was told by police. 

Johnson offered no motive for his would-be attack on the two-time Super Bowl champion.
