Hostage situation at NPO 3FM ends peacefully

A man has held a woman hostage at 3FM in the Netherlands for a little more than an hour on Thursday before he released her and was arrested, Dutch police said.

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.

The man is reported to have threatened a 3FM employee with a knife in a car park and forced her to take him inside the building.

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.
