A man wearing a bulletproof vest and armed with a knife was taken into custody Friday morning outside the Embassy of Israel in Washington, according to a law enforcement official.
Secret Service Uniformed Division officers responded to a report of a suspicious person and vehicle near the embassy at around 8 a.m., the agency said in a statement.
The article goes on to state the following:
The man, who has not been identified, told Secret Service he had a knife on him and had left his car running nearby, the law enforcement official said.
According to the report, the man did not actually threaten anyone, and surrendered his knife to the officers. When police checked his car, they discovered a single bullet, and a dog – but no gun. The incident caused all the roads surrounding the embassy to be shut down Friday morning.
