UTRECHT, Netherlands — Police have arrested a suspect in the attack on a Netherlands tram that left three dead and five wounded.

According to the BBC, police have arrested a man in connection with the attack.

Earlier, police said they were searching for 37-year-old Gokmen Tanis.

It’s not clear where the man was arrested.

“We cannot exclude a terrorist motive,” Dutch anti-terrorism co-ordinator Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg said during a news conference on Monday.

The threat level has been raised to its highest point in the province with schools closing and security increased at airports and mosques.

As reported in the press conference: The police arrested a man for his involvement in the shooting at the #24oktoberplein in #Utrecht.
