Man arrested for attempting to get into cockpit

Police at the Stockholm airport of Arlanda have arrested a man who attempted to get into the cockpit of a plane, Swedish Radio News reports.

The flight departed from Dubai and arrived at Arlanda airport in Stockholm Sunday morning, but not long after the plane had left the United Arab Emirates a passenger started to act aggressively. Later, the man made his way to the plane's cockpit and tried to force the door. Members of the crew managed to apprehend and wrestle the man to the ground before handcuffing him. 

The man was arrested by Stockholm police when the plane had landed safely at Arlanda airport and is now being questioned for attempted aviation sabotage.
