THE Apple store on George Street in Sydney has been evacuated and the road cordoned off after what a witness claimed was a “bomb threat”.
Shoppers were evacuated from the store as around six police cars appeared at the building in the city’s CBD. Officers and a police dog were seen entering the store as a crowd gathered outside.
Ashley, one of those evacuated, tweeted that he “heard store employees talking about a bomb threat, not a drill” and police were “very firm in telling people to leave immediately.”
A NSW Police spokeswoman told news.com.au: “There’s a police operation at a business on George Street and the store was evacuated as a precaution.”
The Rebel Sport store underneath the Apple Store has not been evacuated.
“We were just rushed out of the store, loads of police going in,” Thomas Skinner tweeted.
Traffic has been diverted in the area.
Police have now left the store and a long queue formed of people trying to get back in.
