Police were called to the building at Grøndalsvej 2 in the Viby section of the city just after noon, and immediately evacuated 300 people.

Police were uncertain whether the threat was legitimate and have cordoned off the area within a 100 metre radius.

“We’re not taking any risks,” Police spokesperson Mogens Brøndum told The Copenhagen Post. “We should know within the next couple of hours whether the bomb threat is legitimate, or an empty bomb threat.”
