A homeless man attempted to stage an attack on Good Morning America co-host Michael Strahan Tuesday morning, planning to stab the former NFL footballer with a serrated knife!
The man, allegedly identified as 25-year-old Andre Johnson, demanded to be let into the ABC studios earlier today, and after being denied, came back wielding the sharp weapon.
Luckily, a police officer working security for the network intervened and knocked the blade out of Johnson’s hand — before any harm could be done to the Live! With Kelly And Michael darling.
Apparently, Michael wasn't even aware of the situation until later in the morning!
Johnson was reportedly charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and menacing — after admitting to police he wanted to "kill Michael Strahan."
We're so happy everyone is safe!
