Yesterday a man attempted to enter the National Assembly building with a chainsaw Tuesday afternoon shouting “I’ve had enough of lockdown” before being tackled by security guards in front of the main entrance.
Social media footage from the scene shows the man, who had a dog in tow, being tackled by a security guard while another guard turned off the chainsaw.
Nobody was hurt and the incident did not affect proceedings at the National Assembly, which was just then debating the dismissal of Speaker Igor Zorčič.
Police said they had been informed of the incident around 7pm. A patrol was dispatched to the scene and brought the man into custody.
