A man held a woman hostage at a radio station 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.
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.
