Comedian Kristian Valen was arrested in camouflage suit and with a gun at Aker Brygge in Oslo, according to the newspaper VG.

– I have no comment on this as of now, says Kristian Valen attorney John M. Hammervoll to newspaper.

Saturday morning Oslo police Twitted that they have arrested a man who was seen in the area of Aker Brygge. He has not been a threat in advance of his arrest, and was taken to jail for illegal armament in public places and public nuisance.

– A security company at Aker Brygge contacted the police after they had observed a camouflage dressed man with a gun sitting on a bench, said operations manager Christian Krohn Engeseth to VG.

He says that the weapon was not sharp – and it was sealed.
Valen will be in jail awaiting to be questioned.

– We take a serious view of the situation. A person being observed in public places with weapons will create insecurity among the public, says Rådal, adding that it will be decided whether he will be prepared for custody and to be questioned.
