A man held a woman hostage at a Dutch radio station on Thursday morning, before releasing her and being arrested by police.

A police spokeswoman told Reuters the woman had suffered no serious injury but had been taken to an ambulance for examination. The spokeswoman said she had no information about the hostage-taker’s possible motive.

A Reuters reporter on the scene could see police had partially cordoned off the building in the city of Hilversum.

ANP Nieuws reported earlier the man had had a dispute with the woman, an employee at the station, outside the building, and then forced her to accompany him inside at knifepoint.
