Suspicious Man Briefly Causes Lockdown at Israeli Consulate in New York

NEW YORK -

The Israeli consulate in New York was briefly placed on lockdown Friday morning after an individual was acting suspiciously at the entrance.

On a rainy morning in Manhattan, the man, carrying a book bag, attempted to cut the security line at the consulate, according to the NYPD. The consulate, at 2nd Ave. and 42nd Street in Manhattan, was briefly placed under lockdown as the man was detained. The man was determined to be emotionally disturbed, and not a threat. He was taken to the hospital for observation.
