(CNN) - Police have arrested a man who reportedly threatened to kidnap singer Lana Del Rey.

She performed at the Amway Center in Orlando, just a block away from where the suspect was nabbed Friday night.

Police say 43-year-old Michael Hunt had a knife and tickets to Del Rey's show, but they say he did not get anywhere close to the singer.

Investigators say they received a credible tip about a possible kidnapping threat earlier in the day.

Hunt was reportedly behind that threat, and officers kept their eyes out for him.

He is currently in jail, facing charges of aggravated stalking and attempted kidnapping with a weapon.
