Police in Germany arrested a possible terrorist on Tuesday after having been tipped off about the possible intentions of the “radical Islamist” by U.S. intelligence operatives.

The suspect had allegedly began to gather together materials to carry out a large explosive attack of some kind, and U.S. forces had informed German intelligence of this development.

Authorities did not release specific details of the alleged attack, though they said the man was a 26-year-old and was known to German authorities as a potential terrorist in that country. He had reportedly come to Germany in 2014 as an asylum seeker.

The suspect was employed as a janitor at a German elementary school.
