However, France Bleu radio said that the perpetrator was holding at least three people.

The police said there was no indication that the incident was terrorism-related, but declined to elaborate on the hostage-taker's motive.

A spokesman for France's BRI intervention brigade said negotiations with the man were underway.

The man is being investigated on multiple counts, including kidnapping and sequestration, attempted homicide and violence with a weapon, the official said.

A pregnant woman is reportedly being held captive along with possibly two other people in Paris, according to Daily Mail.

Before the arrest, police and firefighters sent a water-spraying robot into the building, Le Parisien newspaper reported.

Photos and videos from the scene showed numerous police vehicles and ambulances at Rue des Petites Ecuries in the 10th arrondissement of the French capital. Their captor apparently was armed with knives.

Police would not immediately confirm whether the person holding the hostages was armed or describe the nature of his demands. He reportedly struck one man, who managed to escape, but was doused with gasoline.
