He was described as an "emotionally disturbed person".

Church ushers stopped the man before nearby officers with the NYPD Critical Response Command took him into custody.

Officers caught up with Lamparello on Wednesday and he was taken into custody after questioning, said John Miller, deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism for the NYPD. His basic idea was that he was cutting through the cathedral to get to Madison Avenue and his auto was out of gas. "It was not out of gas".

It underwent renovations since then, including a almost $200 million restoration that was announced in 2015, and which was finished a year later, NBC New York reported.

According to Miller, it was at that time that Lamparello reportedly spilled gasoline on the church floor while exiting the building, prompting the security officer to alert counterterrorism officers who were stationed outside.

The incident happened just days after the massive fire that burned at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

France is paying a daylong tribute Thursday to the Paris firefighters who saved the internationally revered Notre-Dame Cathedral from collapse and rescued its treasures from encroaching flames.

At least one of the courses he has taught, Introduction to the Problems of Philosophy, touched on religion. But when police checked on his vehicle, it had plenty of fuel left in the tank. The suspect fled south on Fifth Avenue and onto 50th Street, Miller said.

Deputy Commissioner Miller said the 37-year-old suspect was "known to police", who are now looking into his background.

Lamparello has since been revealed to be a CUNY student seeking his Ph.D.in philosophy- having previously done stints as an adjunct lecturer at Lehman College.

It was almost 8 pm Wednesday when Lamparello, a 37-year-old graduate student and lecturer on philosophy, entered St Patrick's Cathedral in midtown Manhattan toting two gasoline cans, lighter fluid and lighters, police said.

Lamparello did not make any references to Notre Dame while speaking to investigators, authorities said Thursday.

Lamparello has been charged with attempted arson, reckless endangerment, and trespassing as of this afternoon, according to the NYPD News's Twitter.

"We will rebuild the cathedral even more beautifully and I want it to be finished within five years", Macron said in a televised address to the nation a day after the blaze.

St. Patrick's Cathedral recently underwent a $177 million restoration project, which included new fire safety features.
