NEW YORK (AP) – A New Jersey man has been arrested outside St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City with two jugs of gasoline.
    
Police say church personnel stopped the 37-year-old man from entering the landmark cathedral in Manhattan at about 9 p.m. Wednesday. Authorities were investigating whether the unidentified man is emotionally disturbed.
    
There is currently a heavy police presence outside the cathedral on Fifth Avenue. The incident comes just days after flames ravaged the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris.
