Police in riot gear on Tuesday surrounded the entrance of a building in central Paris where a man was holding at least two people hostage, French authorities said.

The French police have said they believe the incident isn't related to terrorism.

A police source said the hostage-taker initially hit one person who was able to escape.

Le Parisien reported three people were taken hostage including a pregnant woman at a building in central Paris' Petites Ecuries street.

The man reportedly asked to speak to the Iranian embassy to deliver a message to the French government, Reuters reports. However, his motivation for such an encounter was unknown. The man also claims to have an accomplice outside the building.

An armed police officer and a sniffer dog search the area. Video on BFM-TV showed a demining device for bombs at the scene. The police could not confirm to AP whether the hostage-taker is actually armed. An Interior Ministry official said negotiations with the suspect were taking place.
