A suspected ISIS terror threat in Munich, Germany prompted officials to evacuate train stations, and a suspected terror plot in the U.S. ended in an arrest on New Year's Eve.

Two train stations in Munich were evacuated shortly after it rang in the New Year when a call was received with a terror warning about ISIS and possible bomb attacks.

The public was urged to avoid large crowds and public transportation as officers mobilized and conducted sweeps of the main Munich train station.

In New York, a 25-year-old man was arrested and charged with attempting to provide material support to ISIS. The FBI accused Emmanuel Lutchman of plotting to carry out an attack in the name of ISIS at a Rochester-area bar on New Year's Eve.

Federal authorities said Lutchman met with an FBI informant and purchased supplies, including zip ties, a machete and duct tape. He also allegedly told an informant he was "getting amped up to accept the fact that's what I got to do."

As a result of the alleged terror plot, the city of Rochester canceled its fireworks show.

Meanwhile, officers in Munich did not yet find anything suspicious at the train stations, and no arrests were immediately made.
