A knife-wielding man walked into the New York Times building in Manhattan on Thursday and demanded to speak to “the politics section,” police said.
The deranged man — who had “a knife in one hand and a stuffed animal in the other” — entered the newspaper’s headquarters on Eighth Avenue between West 41st and 42nd Streets around 12:15 p.m., an NYPD spokesman said.
He then said he wanted to see the Gray Lady’s political reporters, before handing over the knife to security at the building, according to cops.
“There was no fight,” the spokesman said.
The man, who was not identified, was taken to Roosevelt Hospital for evaluation, cops said.
