An armed man reportedly held up a branch of an Israeli bank in Zurich on Wednesday before fleeing the scene, according to local media.

An alarm was activated at the branch of Israel's Mizrahi Bank in Switzerland's largest city after the suspect allegedly demanded money from a teller.

No injuries were reported in the incident. Police arrived to the scene and the suspect's location was unknown, according to local reports.

Swiss police evacuated some some people from the scene and partitioned off the premise.
