Zurich police said on Thursday that a suspicious car near a Jewish school led to an intervention by officers, but there was no indication of criminal action.
“A Jewish school on Schoentalstrasse informed us on Wednesday evening of the presence of a suspicious vehicle that passed the school several times. An unknown man also manifested suspicious behavior near the school on Wednesday afternoon,” police said in a statement on Thursday.
“So far, there is no indication of criminal action,” the statement said.
Police said the blocked street would likely be cleared within the next few hours. They said further security measures had been taken in agreement with the school.
