Paris Police Foil Potential Attack, Arrest Armed Man at Railway Station

French police arrested an armed man and two others at the Austerlitz train station in Paris this week, with all three coming from migrant backgrounds.

The police operation took place on Tuesday at around 4 pm and saw officers from the specialist anti-gang Research and Intervention Brigade (BRI) secure the area after railway police had arrested a man armed with a pistol around an hour before, Le Parisien reports.

At first, police feared the armed man may have been plotting a terrorist attack as two other men attempted to flee from the police and hide in the station toilets.

“Given the situation and the profile of the type arrested, we decided to play it with caution,” a source close to the investigation told Le Parisien.

The source added that investigators were still looking into potential links between the armed man and the other two saying that it was a possibility they merely hid from police for other reasons.
