FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Police say they’ve arrested a man in a parking lot at Gillette Stadium and seized swords, a meat cleaver and an electric stun gun.

WCVB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1SsuoPk ) Foxborough police say officials at the NHL’s annual Winter Classic game on Friday at Gillette Stadium received a report of a suspicious man at an off-site employee parking lot.

Police say they seized the weapons from a car, but there was no threat to the stadium or the event.

Police arrested 48-year-old Matthew Bromson, of North Granby, Connecticut.

Bromson faces charges of trespassing, disorderly conduct, possession of an electric stun gun and three counts of assault with a dangerous weapon.

It’s unclear if Bromson is represented by a lawyer.

A phone listing for Bromson rang unanswered Saturday.

He’s expected to be arraigned Monday.
