An explosion hit a police station in the Danish capital Copenhagen on Saturday, the second blast to hit the city in a week.

No one has been injured in the blast outside a police station in the suburb of Norrebro.

The glass entrance doors were shattered and debris was scattered on the ground outside, images showed.

Police wrote on Twitter that they were looking for a man seen fleeing from the police station blast, dressed in dark clothing and white shoes, and asked any witnesses to come forward. On Wednesday, a large explosion damaged the Danish Tax Agency.

"This used to be not an accident, nevertheless a deliberate act", Chief Police Inspector Jorgen Bergen Skov acknowledged, alongside with that while the investigation used to be aloof below manner, nothing suggested it used to be fright-related.

One person was slightly injured in the explosion at the tax agency earlier in the week.

Police told Reuters it was too early to say whether the two blasts were connected, but could not immediately comment further.

Denmark's new Prime Minister Mette Frederisken said while the attack was deliberate, it was too soon to label it as a "terror" attack. Get it for your iPhone here.
