MIDTOWN, Manhattan — The NYPD has given the all clear after Trump Tower was partially evacuated due to a suspicious package on Tuesday.
The “suspicious package” turned out to be a bag filled with children’s toys, according to NYPD Detective Hubert Reyes.
Video taken by a bystander and posted on Twitter showed people running through the lobby for the exits.
Police Department spokesman Stephen Davis said the backpack was found near the entrance to a Nike Town store in the building.
The bomb squad checked out the package and gave an “all clear” just after 5 p.m.
President-elect Donald Trump is at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, and has not given a statement on the incident.
