Police have detained an armed man who took his girlfriend hostage
Police have detained an armed man who took his girlfriend hostage in an apparent jealous rage in central Moscow on Thursday.

The man, the owner of a small firm in the Moscow Region, held his girlfriend at gunpoint in his car, threatened to kill her and blow up the vehicle, pointing at a device that he said was a home-made bomb.

Police later said "no explosive device was found in the car" and the weapon appeared to be a gas powered pistol.

After police officers stormed the vehicle the female hostage was released "uninjured," the spokesman added.

"They had been living together in a common-law marriage. The woman said he had constantly been jealous of her," the police spokesman said.

A police source said that the hostage taker had made no demands. An investigation has been opened into the incident.
